Description 

This route was named for a friend of Tony's who passed away earlier this year. Tony promised him he'd name his first FA after him.

Pitch 1 (5.7). Start on a short slab, and head up a series of cracks. About 20 feet up, you'll hit the crux (if you're short.) Immediately after, things ease off a bit, and you find yourself on a big ledge. Head up and traverse a bit to the right, then follow the cracks up to a larger belay ledge.

Pitch 2 (5.6). Head straight up from the belay ledge, and choose one of the many crack systems to follow all the way to the top.

You can descend by walking back to the south, where you'll find an easy walkoff gully.

Protection 

We used a single set of cams and a set of nuts.
