This route, also on the Left Side face, starts about 10' right of "Felix". Make some moves up to the ledge, step left and follow face and a right curving flake/crack, then a few feet up a vertical crack. Move left to another crack. Follow this and face to the top.


Pro to 1.5", bolted anchor/rap.

Not much in the way of pro up this climb. Top has 3 bolts (2 with rap rings) on it.

Fun enough if you're cleaning out the litterbox but again this is hardly a destination crag.

There's about one good pro placement on the whole route. Combine that with occasionally questionable and grainy rock and you might want to think twice about leading this thing whatever grade you're competent at.

Can be toproped by gaining the anchor after leading Felix.

The OP indicated cams for anchors. This has a bolted anchor.

The only thing the scant and crappy pro on this route protects is your sense that you are not free soloing.
