A few easy but awkward moves take you to a small roof. Reach out left to a jug and pull thru the roof on crimps and side pulls. Continue straight up (It is possible, though not recommended, to scoot right at the third bolt to cop a rest among the choss.) until the climbing eases off and finish on big comfy holds.


Right hand line on the beautiful orange face around the corner to the right of Surprise Inside. Best approach is to climb Righteous are the Brave then traverse ledges and scree to ledge below the orange headwall. The alternative is a scramble up the horrendous scree pile to the right of Cutthroats Don't Wear Plaid.


Five bolts to bolted anchor.
