Description 

A fun route that tackles bouldery moves in a dihedral down low to cruisey fingers and hands with lots of good rests above. Decidedly not sustained. Protection is good but you can't place it whenever you want to. Starts on the right of a large rectangular bay ("pop-sickle" takes the left side).

Protection 

Protects well with small cams and nuts, plus a 1-2" cam or nut for the top. The crux takes small gear (I used a 0 mastercam). Bolts and chains up top.
