Description 

This is a great route which requires all the granite techniques. Deceptively steep and sustained, we thought it was going to be about 9+ when we first looked at it.
Four cruxes. Which one is harder? Depends on your technique.
Takes gear well, especially wires.

Location 

This is on the lowest part of the crag, 20ft down and right of the obvious corner. Starts below a small tree stump.
See Shake it Up for directions to the crag.

Protection 

Set of wires, 1/2" to 3" cams and bolts.
Keep a 1/2",1" and 3" cams for between the two bolts. Little 5.6 runout at the top to the bolt anchor.

It doesn't look at all how it climbs. Really fun movement with lots of rests. Great gear and a bolt to protect the crux, thank god.
