Description 

This is another left facing corner that is just to the right of Too Short. Directly above the route is a roof with a drill hole in it. Climb up to the roof and move around to the right, heading for the top. It is also possible to pull through the roof. This route tends to stay wet longer the other routes around it. This was originally a trad route but should only be top-roped at the current time. As with many of the routes in this area, some of the rock is not the best. There has been a large quantity of rock removed from the route to make it safe but there will still be some small pieces breaking loose. This should alleviate itself in time. However, caution and proper safety gear should always be used.

Update: there are now three bolts and a separate set of rings at the top. Try to stay on the face, left of the corner, as much as possible as the rock quality is much better.

Location 

Left wall. There is a topo in front of the wall to help with identification.

Protection 

Two anchors at top without rings. Now has two ring anchors and three bolts.
