BETA PHOTO: Looking up the route from the base

Description 

Start up a very thin flake. From the top, climb up, trending right a bit, past 3 bolts, then continue angling left up diagonal seams past 3 more bolts to an easy slab finish to the anchor chains. Lots of pockets from fingertip to deep jug size characterize this featured slab route.

It's possible to scamper up vegetated ledges to the left of the buttress to reach the top if desiring to set a TR. One can also descend this way after soloing up the route.

Location 

Located about 50 m left of Tree Frog and Leap Frog, up and left from the top of Sleeping Princess. Fastest approach is to pull up the fixed rope left of the base of Sleeping Princess and continue up the gully to a major ledge. Serpentine climbs the middle of the triangular buttress directly above this ledge.

Protection 

6 bolts. No need for other gear. Rap chains at the top, will need to clip to anchor and rethread to descend.
