An awkward starting sequence leads to a beautiful low angled right facing corner that gradually fades into a frictiony finish.
A TR can be set by scrambling up from the right.


The rightmost and uppermost route in the Surf City area.


Gear to 1.5" (mostly smaller), bolted rap station

As of 8/19/13 there were bolts up top, but no rap rings...the walk off right was simple though. Fun finger crack corner, if a bit short!
