Description 

A decent warm-up and actually quite a nice route if the correct line is taken.

Start up a juggy, left-facing flake, third bolt-line from the left, to a big ledge. Take the left-hand line of bolts above this (the right-hand line is Bikini Atoll). A series of chalked-up holds in the middle section lure many climbers left, but go right up good but spaced crimps for the best (easiest and most direct) climbing.

Location 

About the third line of bolts from the left, shares a start with Bikini Atoll to the right up a short, juggy left-facing flake.

Protection 

about 6 bolts, 2-bolt anchor

Fully re-bolted with Titan Climbing Eterna titanium resin bolts and Hilti RE500 epoxy in February 2015.

Original Petzl Collinox bolts remain but Portland staples replaced by titanium hardware (including the lower off).
