Description 

Kind of technical slab on bubbly rock leads up to some big tuffas. Wrestle with the tuffas untill you come to the hanging spike. Work your way around the spike and up onto the steep headwall. Big holds take you up the headwall to within 8 feet of the lip. Here is where the crux hits. Grab your choice of bad small holds and gun for the hold at the lip. Sloping edges get you over and to the anchors.

Location 

This route is the third route on the panel between the caves. It is marked by a big hanging spike at the base of the headwall about 40 feet up. The name is scratched in the rock at the base.

Protection 

Bolts and a bolted anchor.
