Start on a bushy slab and work up to a right facing corner on mostly brown/orange rock. Continue up the corner and pull a bulge on nice grey rock with pockets and pinches. Step left to the anchors. Shares the anchor with "Orange Crush".

This route is a little dirty down low but will clean up with ascents. The crux bulge is clean and on excellent grey rock.


Right of "Orange Crush". See the beta picture.


9 bolts and sport anchors. 60 meter rope to descend.
