Description 

Start with a huge leap or, more feasibly, stemming across a traverse to a hanging dihedral. Friction moves and underclings lead to an easy slab. Pull up a steep bulge via a massive xenolith with several amazing jugs. Continue to another short bulge that can be climbed via a very short handcrack on the left or some large but grassy and possibly suspect knobs on the right. Finish with an easy pocketed slab.

Lots to like about this climb, a wide variety of holds and moves.

Location 

Starts off the ledge atop the Bootsauce Extension and directly right of Tree Frog.

Rap anchors on top, shared with Tree Frog. 30m rap back to base, another 30m down Bootsauce to the ground.

Protection 

10 bolts.
