This is a fun, sustained 5.10 face climb up a black streak. The climbing is slightly less than vertical, balancy, and techy. Follow four bolts, finding crimps and edges that lead to a ledge with a bolted anchor.

According to Cole Fennel's book, this was Arkansas' first sport route.


Bolted route to the right of Cruise Control and Sonya Come Home. Left of the obvious roof system on The Nose.


4 lead bolts and a bolted anchor on top. The bolts are somewhat runout compared to more modern sport routes. (Same anchor as Sonya Come Home.)
