Description 

This is a short, very juggy route to the left of Rock Till You Drop. It consists of a small overhang down low with a small flat face then up to a bunch of ledges and jugs. There is one hold in the middle that is pretty much a handle. It's a good route to warm up or burn out on as it is something you just muscle your way up. If you keep your feet high under the small roof on the flakes and start with your hands on the lowest ledge it makes it harder. Bring your feet up to the flat face quickly to keep the pressure on your hands and keep sculpting those guns. It really works the ubulis and the dorsimus minor as Ron Burgandy would say.

Location 

It's on the far left (facing) of the Main Face boulder. It's not really part of the Main Face boulder but on a smaller one sitting beside it (left). If you are facing RTYD then go left under the tree till you see the obvious start of a new boulder. You can identify the route by the huge handle like jug in the middle of it. Start as low as you can in front of the jug and head straight up and over.

Protection 

None but be careful slipping off the first few holds. You can smack your face coming down.
