Work up big holds at the start to a high first bolt and then make the crux mantle (5.10) which leads to easier slab climbing past two more bolts. The last bolt protects a short section of vertical face that guards the anchors.


Around and left from The Angry Inch on the south face of the formation.


4 bolts, chain anchors

If you're looking for "just one more route" this is a good choice. It may be low angle but the starting bulge packs a punch and puts your slab skills to work.

This route started kind of fun and continued on that way, but the way it ends just seems... whatever. Don't expect a finish jug. Clip the anchors and take. It just feels like no sense of accomplishment once you actually do make the moves.
