Description 

This is a good beginner's slab route on the same pillar as Innie. The name is unofficial and comes from a horizontal string of three vugs that look like belly buttons below the first bolt. Climb up and over a fun, easy roof. There are some interesting moves after bolt 3. I used features and the left edge after the last bolt to keep it interesting and fun. The short crack/seam near the top takes a nice red alien placement.

Location 

This is the left of the two routes on the slab/pillar (I call it Belly Button Slab)shown on page 121 of Supertopo's S Lake Tahoe guide as 5.4X with no pro.

Protection 

4 bolts and optional red alien or other 1" cam.

The pillar is easy to find but if you're looking for the three belly button jugs keep in mind they are right off the deck, not where they would come in handy. There is a very hard to see bolt directly above these under the roof. We felt the move from this bolt to the roof was harder than 5.4. The roof itself was easy.
