A short climb with an incredible mix of powerful and balance moves. Thin crimps straight up from the start until an interesting undercling on a flake, then trend left and up to the obvious crack and anchors. The rock is very sharp and somewhat crumbly. The crux of the route is probably getting on it.


The start of this route is on the bat wall, above (and behind) Triscuit Rock. Climb Triscuit rock, then turn around after you top out. Look for the beginning crimp and huge foot above the first boulder towards the back of the cave. Getting on is probably the hardest move, as it can be difficult to balance on the slightly overhanging wall.


Bolted TR anchor. Setup from above by hopping across gaps in rocks. Recommend using caution and perhaps a belay down from the main rock to the bolts.
