Similiar to other climbs at the pipeline. Pull on large to med. size cobbles on a steep wall. A longer move at the lip is the crux.

This route is listed in the new MC guide as 12c, but when we redpointed it, our consensus was 12a/11dish? It seems easier than both Chia Pet and Cresent Moon.
Worth doing.

Climbed this on 5-28-14. at that time there was a loose golf-ball-sized cobble at the lip, when this cobble goes, it may bring a much larger (10-14 inch diameter) cobble down with it. Make sure the belayer wears a helmet and stands to climbers left... keep the rope pile to the left as well. Otherwise super fun! Really interesting crux!

Wondering if something broke on the route since the guidebook was published, considering the only hard part is about a v3/4ish move at the lip. Fun, worth doing, just soft.
