Start off the deck with great holds and move straight up with increasing difficulty to clip 4 where the crux starts. Continue through a balancy and hard to read mid-section for 2 clips to a great stance. Go up the final small fingery bulge to the anchors.


In between Mr. Scary and Hazed & Infused. This is the 5th route if coming up the road from the Feline Parking lot.


7 clips to anchors.

Thought this route was quite enjoyable. Certainly far better than the single star it gets in the guidebook. In my biased opinion, far better than 3 star Hot Potato. Hardly anyone climbs here, but this route is worth a look. Not mega but worth doing.
