Do a fun, jug-haul start to an inside-corner stance. Make a steep, long reach to the overhead finger crack that extends up the slabby face. Pull/layback this crack (crux), and use the extending-block arete (climber's right) and small ledge (left) to get your feet up onto the slab. It's easy climbing to the top after you pull the crux.


It is on the right side of The Overlook positioned between the distinguishable body-jam route, One Step Beyond, and the descent gully (farthest right). Look for the protruding jugs that tend right and toward an inside corner formed by a 5' tall protruding block (with a sharp arete) about 15' off the ground.


Tricky gear with a reachy placement to protect the crux (to avoid groundfall). A top rope is recommended (tree anchor).
