Located in the center of the southwest face with Squash Pockets (5.11a) on the left and Galactic Interlude (5.10d) on the right.

Scramble to the top of a small block at the base, preclip the 1st bolt and start climbing up (5.10+) or climb back down and do the "direct start" which begins from ground level just to the left (5.11a). Continue up the face above passing several small roofs/overlaps to gain a stance below the tightly bolted crux section at the top.

Although somewhat continuous in nature the climbing is never strenous and affords numerous rest with the actual crux being a single, well-protected slab move requiring good balance and precise footwork. Perhaps the best route at the crag (with a long name).


8 bolts, chain anchors
