Once again the duo of Kodas/Yaniro struck gold with this excellent route up the center of the east face. An ever-steepening slab on stellar rock leads to the crux at the top, which involves some difficult moves in a shallow corner. Best done on a cool day, this short route will test your footwork and balance; a good route to do after a run up the nearby Hot Lava.


Toprope from bolts (3/8") atop the route.
