Description 

Shares the first two bolts with Friend of the Devil, then moves right to jugs, and finishes up the exposed, shallow dihedral. This route requires sequential, confident footwork in the start, then some jug pulling up to the dihedral, and then more technical footwork in the dihedral all the way to the anchor. Great exposure due to the fact that the route starts at the top of a 75 foot slab on the side of the mountain. Don't forget to top out after you clip the anchor.

Location 

Located on the highest chunk of the area, 75 feet up past the grotto. Scramble/solo up the base of the wall or used fixed rope off to the left to reach the ledge system at the base of the route.

Protection 

bolts to anchors

One of the best 11s in town. Great mix of slabby moves. Interesting and sustained the whole way.
