Description 

This route looks a lot harder than it actually climbs. Great jams and other interesting holds in the steep corner with overlaps.

Step up into a fun chimney and pop a cam above you before transitioning into the nice corner crack. Step up onto an alcove, catch your breath, and cruise easier terrain to the anchors.

Location 

Just left of the infamous Psycho-Killers, starts in a chimney that leads to hands in a corner through steep overlaps.

Protection 

single rack from 0.5 to #5 Camalot. Bring an extra gold and blue camalot. bolted anchor.

Kevin Obrien made the first attempt at this fun corner, thinking it was an established warmup route. Halfway up, the crusty and loose blocks (now mostly cleaned out) convinced him of otherwise, and he lowered off a cam that sat there the next two years. We finally went and gave this line the love it deserved. Turned out to be a fun route, will clean up nicely with a little traffic. Great addition to an already nice warmup sector on the Upper Wall.
