At the base of the east facing slab is a prominent crack that roughly bisects the slab. Ascend the prominent crack (the first 1/3 of this route is shared with "One Bolt Too Many." The crack will terminate. At this point, you have the choice of traversing either left or right. Traverse left to the large crack. Ascend the large crack. The crack will terminate at a ramp, which has a large bolt. You can rappel from this bold (~75ft) or alternatively continue up the ramp at 1 O'clock to the tree. This tree has a rappel station that is shared with "One Bolt Too Many."


Within the Lower Ridge Slabs area are multiple crags. This route is located at the east facing slab, which has a prominent tree 100ft up the slab.


0.5 to 3.5 (4.0 if you want to be super safe). One bolt. Excellent route for the introductory trad climber.
