Interesting gear.

Description 

This was the first route established on the wall and was named for the first ascent, a ground-up lead with no bolts. When we first came to this cliff, we asked if we should hike around and drop a rope down to toprope it first. To pay "homage to Kor and the boys," we thought it fitting to go ground-up, as Kor did numerous times on climbs in this area. We added a couple of bolts later to make it safer.

At the start, clip a bolt and make a big pull through the roof to mantle onto the shelf above. Plug gear in horizontals and clip a bolt on the face above. Finish by climbing right of a roof with a wide crack for gear to find a two-bolt anchor on a ledge.

Location 

On the left side of the crag is a large, horizontal roof. On the left side of this big roof is a bolt that protects the first moves off the ground and marks the start of the route.
This is the 3rd route from the left.

Protection 

Two bolts and a set of cams from tiny to #5 Camalot. Two bolt chain anchor.
