Description 

Characterized by a perfect, 30-degree overhanging wall with a big, chalk-coated flake at the second bolt, this climb offers multiple dynamic cruxes on perfect stone. The first crux is between the first and second bolt which is characterized by a technical highstep and right-hand sidepull which leads you to the big flake at the second bolt. A bit of a reprieve before cruising through the sloppy, left-trending seam. Then, the second redpoint crux of dynoing four feet from the first seam to the second higher one at the fifth bolt. A worthy tick with satisfying moves on awesome stone.

Location 

It heads straight up and right from the start of the neighboring arete climb, Spew.

Protection 

Six bolts and station.
