Description 

Fun bulging wide crack that follows a couple of roof features and then up a low angle gully. The route has a little bit of stemming, jamming and even a chimney move or two. A little after the second roof the good climbing ends and a gravel filled gully awaits you.

Location 

This route follows the obvious wide crack and chimney that starts on the far right side of Red Slab. It starts in the north facing wide crack/chimney below the Mosstique belay ledge, a few feet right of the 4th class scramble to the top of Red Slab.

Protection 

A rack of cams to 5" will suffice. There is also a couple of chockstones you can sling and an ancient fixed knifeblade at the second roof.
Two Ring bolts for the anchor at the top of the mungy gully.
