Climbs a steep reddish brown piece of highly featured rock to the crux move at a less than vertical minimally featured slab top-out. Unlike most Josh sport climbs, this route does not depend on the integrity of broken off patina edges for its survival. Morning sun, shade rest of day.


Found roughly 100 feet down and left of Cowabunga on a steep reddish brown cliff that resembles a juicy steak, fat along its edge and all. Easy 4th class walk off to the left.


6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. Anchor hangers are without links, rings, or biners.
