Description 

Starts with 5.10 face climbing (with an ocassional stem here and there) up a shear clevage plane bound on the right by a dihedral. After a short traverse left, a very good rest prepares you for the short and steep boulder problem leading to a huge jug. Continue over a final roof and past a few more bolt on more 5.10 climbing to the chains

Location 

The route is located at the far left of WWI proper and starts up the obvious right facing corner to the left of Black Ice, Bust a Move, etc. Belay from the small ledge above Launch Ledge.

Protection 

Protaction is entirely fixed with a two bolt anchor at the top. Cleaning the route can be a pain.

Today we saw a leader cause significant rockfall at the point where you transition from the slab corner into the steep blocky section.

The microwave-sized block and assorted choss that came down exposed a fair bit of new rock there, so be extremely cautious when leaving the smooth slab - hard to say what's solid and what else is ready to come loose.

Glad everyone was okay, minus a nasty cut for the leader's arm.
