Description 

This squeeze job between "Lizard Locks" and "Introductory Offer" was intentionally left as a toprope by the FA team of those routes, as they felt bolts on the face here would detract from the climbing of those 2 fine routes. It is, however, an excellent toprope route, and easily accessed from the top by doing one of the 2 flanking routes first, or just walking down to the anchor tree from the top.

Another nice TR version (at about 5.12) found by Kelton Rappleyea is the overhanging start just to the right of this, start by grabbing the positive hold and pulling a very hard mantel move.

Toprope stuff.
