Description 

A short route that packs in 2 distinct cruxes. Big moves on positive holds lead to a balancy few moves into the crack at the base of the roof. From here a tricky sequence utilizing a key fingerlock will take you to the top of the cliff and the anchor. Falling at the top crux results in a nice clean fall into space. So far, there has only been once ascent though a couple of able bodied people have had a couple cracks at it.

Protection 

4 bolts and biners on the anchor. There is a fixed wired nut in the crack at the roof for the shorter folk who may be discouraged by the reach out the small roof for the last bolt.
