Description 

Good overhanging sport climbing that you would otherwise have to continue halfway to Whistler to find. 5.11 and 5.12 only in this area, unless any projects have turned into 13s. Go warm up in the West Wing if necessary.

Getting There 

The trail the parking emerges at the left side of this crag, so it's not tough to find.

The crux for me was a long move near the last bolt, although maybe the pump had something to do with this being the hard part. The route seems to pack quite a punch for it's relatively short length.This is rated 5.12b in the squamish select book, but definitely felt harder to me.
