Start on a horizontal shelf-like thing and make a big move up to another horizontal shelf. From here up, follow the natural weakness that accepts decent gear. Merge onto Left Arete of slab/ Fools Gold, go up and finish as desired (left, middle, straight, all 5.9ish). This whole section is pretty sustained at 5.9 and the steep nature inflicts a pump.


This route is located to the right of Fools Gold, before you walk around the right-side corner of the Land of Overhangs. Walk or rap off.


Single rack to 2". One 3"-4" piece may be desired for the top out.

This name comes from the fact that I talked a friend out of climbing this line onsight a couple years before I led it. I told him "It's steep stuff, questionable gear, and maybe pretty hard moves". Actually, not a bad line. Sorry Joe Terravecchia. I'm sure you could've aced this in your sleep.
