Description 

Start in a big, white dihedral with a hand crack. Stem up the corner through two wide sections to a roof. Skirt right around the roof and finish up top.

Similar to "Big Men, Small Airplanes" there are bolted anchors beneath the roof for the budding leader to hone their skills. Goes 5.8 to the anchors but the wideness could make it feel much more difficult than "Big Men."

Location 

Just right of Pleasing to the Touch in a nice obvious dihedral.

Protection 

Gear to 4"; anchors beneath roof; gear or tree up top
