This route starts off the ledge (5.5 scramble) just right of Flight Simulator, and left of Jewel of the Wild. It takes the white, blank panel straight up past multiple hidden pockets. The start is relativly easy, to a tricky, flexible, double undercling move, to a big, chipped, right hand pocket. From here, it's enormous lockoffs with no feet past 5 more chipped monos and pockets, to a 5.11 section to the top. I personly felt this route was chipped poorly, leaving you feeling like your doing a tweaky campus board workout. The name has nothing to do with the route style, but if you like pulling on pockets, and want a 13a onsight, here's your route....


Follow the trail from the Cactus Cliff access road to The Vault, and this will deposit you at a big dihedral. This route starts off the ledge 20 feet up, just right of Flight Simulator and left of Jewel of the Wild.
