Description 

This route combines arête and face climbing with some cool technical stemming. Pull a hard boulder problem on the arête. After reaching the huge jug, angle right across the face past 2 more bolts and some fun, sequential climbing to a stemmed-out stance on The Wormhole. Engineer your way up the now very wide (buy easy) flared chimney using some face holds also. Bring a stopper for the last bit shared with The Wormhole. A sustained route with good flow.

Location 

Climbs the bolted face left of the obvious wide crack.

Protection 

Pretty much a sport route. 3 bolts, 1 stopper (#10 works well). Bolted Anchor
