Description 

An alternative start to Bongeater (or on its own), a curious start leads to impressive flared hand jamming for the extent of the climb. Much less grovel-ly than the start of Bongeater itself and enjoyable the whole way, decide for yourself the finish: unprotected slab to the right to walk off, or make the tenuous transition to Bongeater and finish up there?

Or, for the real tough people, TR it after leading Bongeater.

Location 

10 feet to the right of Bongeater.

Protection 

#1s and #2s. Maybe some larger nuts if you're creative. Place a piece at the start to protect your belayer.
