Description 

The very first route put up in all of Panic Town. Solid gear on hard, carbon-rich sandstone with fun moves, the crux coming at the odd, bulgy bits about halfway up.

Key starts for the lower section of Wall 5


Take the double-crack line on the left side of the lower section of Wall 5 (before you need to scramble up the boulders and to the landing at the tree). Dedicate yourself to the left crack that starts to thin as the right crack moves further right and into bush & yucca. If you're climbing at your grade, don't be stingy with your gear before the wavy bulge sections. Good edges and pedestals will be forthcoming.

Protection 

Standard rack (a #4 will help you build a better anchor at the top). It's a toss-up at this point to either walk off down and right or wander along the top to the left to rap. Probably best to walk off if the bushes haven't been trimmed recently.
