Description 

The name is misleading: we changed one letter to keep it "family-friendly".
Climb up a short corner, through blocks via an offwidth, to a steep ramp/corner. Go up this to an overhang, and break through it to the left, then climb a slab to the top of the formation. Hopefully, none of the megablocks you're hugging come loose.

Location 

20' right of the low end of the cliff, at a large ash tree growing on a choss ramp below an obvious, broken cluster of corners leading to a steep ramp.

Protection 

Full Rack, long runners, a complete dirth of common sense, and perhaps some prayer.
