Description 

One of the longer(est?) routes of the crag. Overhanging for a long while and then tops out on not as easy as desired slab. Crux may be pulling onto the less than vertical section, though not one move in particular felt like a hard 12.

Number 1 reason to do this route: There's a cave about 2/3 up the route. Hang out there for as long as you can before your belayer rips you out of it.

The rock up high is phenomenal!

Location 

This route is one route to the left of clear for takeoff and to the right of Vice Grip.

Protection 

15 bolts to chain anchors(fixed biners at present).

If you do this later in the summer there are hundreds of moths in the alcove and you may not want to climb into it. The will invade your bubble.
