Start off a boulder left of the striking Thin Vice and climb the left edge of the face up and right to reach the anchors on that route. The crux comes at mid-height and involves moving off a knob and some edges into a head-sized hueco (shorter people may need to jump to reach the hold).

Good rock and fun moves up positive holds are in this route's favor, but the potential swing should you fall is not. One star out of five.


Approach as for the Love Nest block but instead of turning off for those routes continue east on a good trail that leads to the Planet X area.

Once even with the eastern edge of the rubble pile that the Love Nest is a part of make a left (heading north) and look for a large round boulder about midway along the east side that's set back slightly (this is directly below the highpoint of the rubble pile). Scramble through brush and a small cave past the base of the The Accidental Purist and then make a quick left to reach this short north-facing wall.
