Another typical Muscle Beach usual, don't let the grade fool you. Use some jamming trickery or boulder your way through the tough opening move and the relax (well, sort of) through armbars and good fist jams up the rest of route.


This route starts in a crack in a low, 4-ft roof.


Large cams, mostly 3.5-4 camalots.

Gear (C4 sizes): #3 or #3.5 (2), #4 (2), #5 (to protect very first move off ground). Crux is probably just getting off the ground and feet up into the crack. Top is slings on a tree.
