Description 

Enjoyable route with a thin finger crux about half-way up. Keep in mind that this is a long route and you'll need two ropes or a 70m rope to rappel.

Location 

Start in the center of the rock following the small crack system. Eventually reach a fun finger crack - pull the crux and clip a few bolts until you hit the top.

Protection 

Gear to 2" with small gear to protect the crux section. 5 bolts and a chain anchor at the top.

Easily the best route on this crag, it appears to get the least amount of traffic.

a great route. there are anchors mid way down for Inverted Firkin. 2 rappels with a 60m rope.
Easy with 70 m. A 60 m will reach the ground if you shoot for further up slope.
Typical of Leavenworth, the upper section has some run-out between bolts, weaving back and forth to find holds gets you to the anchor.
