Description 

The bottom face tends to stay choss, however the roof above is solid, strong climbing! The initial crux is in the first roof off of the face, thin crimps lead to a desperate foot cut or interesting foot/finger jam to avoid cutting your feet. The climbing between the first and final roof is cruiser, the final roof has some heinous moves- work on your trad technique- once you are hanging from your hand on the head wall you have it bagged!

This route has very old bolts and hangers, hopefully these will be replaced in the coming year.

This route could also be done on gear.

Location 

The route is dead center of the cave and as of right now is the only route on the face between Narcissus & Long Dong Silver. It starts on a crumbly face, and is typically chossy as noted above.

A large boulder is directly left of the of the line.

Lower to clean the above portion and climb to the first perma in the initial roof to clean the low face.

Protection 

Anchors with some permas, there may be some additional fixed gear added.
