Description 

Hard flaring finger jamming and trying to clip the third bolt makes up the crux.

"It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly; who errs and comes short again and again; because there is not effort without error and shortcomings; but who does actually strive to do the deed; who knows the great enthusiasm, the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement and who at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly. So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat.”--TEDDY ROOSEVELT

Location 

About 100 feet right of "We All Float On".
Start at a small sage bush left of the main crack. Be careful..gear will get to a ledge and a good yellow alien just before the first bolt. Hard climbing past three bolts lead to ledge and gear...clip the last bolt and gain a ledge...rap from the anchor.

Protection 

Gear and bolts. Rappel from a two bolt anchor. Easy to access for toprope.
