Description 

The route starts as a left-leaning ramp that tries to push you off. The crux comes as the holds get thinner making for some interesting slabby/balancy moves. Then there is a short section of crack that one must at some point abandon to climb the bolted face and reach the anchors.

Location 

Down and left from the main Upper Elbow Room crag. Always shady in the winter.

Protection 

8 bolts to lower off.

The slabby ramp half way up will make you think but he crux for me was transitioning off the ramp and onto the face following the bolt line.
