The route wanders up the left side of The Left Cheek. The crux is at the second bolt. Climb the route, and belay your second from the top. The anchors are set back on the Tramp Stamp Ledge.


The route is on the far left side of The Left Cheek.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor.

Slabby, but grippy, the upper portion is only so so, I would recommend going to the anchors on the next route (to the right), Junk In the Trunk. Nice 5.9, good warmup for the other routes around the buttress.

Don't let the large spacing between bolts scrare you away; this climb is well bolted. It's the easiest route at the crag and would be a good quick warmup for some of the harder 9s.

Scramble, scramble, clip a bolt, pull a harder move... rinse, and repeat. Not really worth climbing unless 5.8-5.9 is your grade. Not even that good of a warm-up, since the climbing between the harder bits are really easy. Going to the anchor for Junk in the Trunk is a good idea if you want to set up a slingshot toprope, since the anchor for this route is set about 10 feet back from the top. Otherwise belay your climber from the top, then rap from the anchor.
