Description 

Fun corner climbing that requires some thought. The second roof to the right has swallows living in it - please avoid by staying left (the holds and rock quality are much better to the left anyway!).

Location 

The shallow corner in the middle of the left part of the wall.

Protection 

3 bolts, pro to 1.25", 2 bolt anchor with mussy hooks.

I remember telling myself to 'just relax'.. right b4 pulling the roof above the 2nd bolt and what I thought was the crux. had some killer moves but somewhat heady because of the gear that protects you. make sure your stopper placements are deep in the crack..stoppers over cams for pro. and theres one more bolt above the roof right when you need it since the pro gets shallow.

A great little route! Fun climbing with good gear between the bolted sections. As with many/most routes in the 'Bamas, it's nice to have a stick clip. I use one religiously and shamelessly. It's fun! Save your ankles for more routes. :)
