Don't blame me, I didn't name it. Good Stone. Up the blond streak right of "No Deck-A-Dunce"
Fun lower climbing leads to not much for hands in the crux. The crux comes at the 2nd-3rd bolt. Heel hook with your right and slowly work the arête feature up through the bulge. After the last bolt there is a minor run out to the top and the anchor is hidden below the very top. CHECK THE QUICKDRAW ANCHOR. REPAIR IF NEEDED PLEASE.


4 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

Crux comes at the 3rd bolt. I used a right heel hook on the small protruding flake before the bulge. Reachy Holds gets you through the bulge and then climber "thinker" easier terrain to the top. The anchor should probably be rappelled. Its in a funky spot for a TR or lowering IMHO. Good route!
