Climb face with diagonal features to bulge, then around bulge/alcove to the left (crux). Climb easy face and small ledges to the bolted anchors. This route uses the middle of the wall. Little Gem Diner to the left, and Blue Toes to its right.


Start a few feet to the right of Little Gem Diner, on a face with several diagonal features.


Bolted anchors on top. Please use webbing to build anchors, do not top rope through bolts!

I find this route every bit as delightful as Little Gem Diner, maybe even more so (more thoughtful than LGD).
