Resting at the great jug just after the crux. On ...

Description 

This route is similar in character to its neighbor, but with much smaller holds. The intimidating roof at the top is actually not that hard (easier than the roof on The Dig), though its possible to pump out while trying to clip the anchor.

A devious start leads to the juggy choss band and the 2nd bolt. The crux comes next with powerful moves on tiny, sharp crimps, ending at the 4th bolt. Another great rest and a few more moves lead to a good rest stance before the final traverse left out the roof.

Location 

Immediately left of The Dig.

Protection 

7 bolts to 2 bolt anchor that is difficult to see from the ground.
