Description 

Start in a dihedral with a thin hand crack, making easy stemming and layback moves. Once the left wall begins to lean away pull onto the overhanging main face via a wild traverse and continue up on good holds to the anchors.

Not in the latest RRG guide.

Location 

Left side of the Chocolate factory. Starts in a crack in a dihedral and heads up to an overhanging face. Just right of a low angle bolted arete. To the right are a few climbs that look like they are projects at this time.

Underrated. Definitely one of my favorites at the Factory.

Awesome climb! Fun stemming moves until the third bolt where there are jugs to help get you established on the face. Once on the face, get ready for a steep, pockety pump fest to the anchors! Such a fun route!

Superfun hand crack to fun overhang. Fell when grabbing the wrong part of pocket, didn't realize I was above one of the last bolts and went for a 30 footer. My 100lb girlfriend was almost in the 1st bolt. My first thought was, "man, I hope I don't hit the left wall!" Clean fall though.
