Description 

A forgotten classic! Climb a beautiful face filled with pockets and crimps to a large hueco near the roof. Not a bad idea to shoo off any wasps on the roof while you're in the hueco: "Hey guys, don't sting me, I need to SEND!" Then finish through the roof crack to an interesting top out at the lip.

Looks fun, but is it a man made route? I heard urban assault was closed too.

There are some doctored holds, but otherwise, it would have remained an unclimbable choss like. Instead, it's a bad ass choss pile. Not closed. Humidity adds many grades. Exposure is rad and moves are some of the best fun around. Anyone have the video of Rick Watson walking this?

Ferris, 13a grade may be a little high. But whatev.

PS. Mind the wasps or hornets (not sure which... Either way, flying insects with painful butt daggers) at the lip. Craig kicked his heel right into them. This rather pissed them off. Somehow he escaped without any battle scars.
