Start on the left side of a pod (just above a little down-climb on the walk into the Grail). The start is shared with Horse Platitudes. Break off to the left when you reach the left facing dihedral at mid-height. A sustained and boulder crux ensues shortly after. Crimp and high step your way to a rest below one last hard move up and left of a pod to the chains.

Bring six or seven draws and then clip the climbtechs (in 2015). The difficulty gradually builds to a longish and badass boulder involving precise footwork and unique holds. Bask in the hueco and stay cool for the technasty finish. Such a good rock climb.

This rig should not be missed! Its fantastic climbing from the ground to the chains! Such a neat crux up on the steep headwall!
