Description 

This has sustained, bouldery, face climbing finishing with a blocky roof. It is a forgotten gem that cleans up nicely. Recommended.

Location 

This is between Bolted Crack and Cafe Cascade.

Protection 

Bolts.

GREAT route, possibly now my favorite at Cascades. 6 sequences of hard 11 moves, some beautiful core moves on crimps. Posted about it and some pictures - takeslack.com/sows-ear/.
