Description 

Farthest south bolt line just before the broken dihedral crack.

Balance technique in small pockets to a one foot ledge. Take a breath and continue upwards.

May be done as a top rope by scrambling up ledges to the south.

Protection 

Five bolts to double chain anchors.

Most people unleash a dyno from the ledge, but it is more of a challenge to climb it static.

The dyno is tons of fun! A worthwhile route for that one move alone.

I like this route. The beginning can be somewhat hard but not too bad. Lots of crimping. :)

The dyno is the only way to go in this and Barbie. They share the same ledge, and the dyno is a good short jump. Very good for those willing to try something new in a semi "safe" area to do it in. The ledge is a campground, so you don't have to worry much about losing your footing, and the pocket you jump into is solid and easy to stick. Same thing for Barbie, only it's a little further of a dyno.
