Description 

Deceptively difficult - a "Sunday drive" with a major roadblock.

Waltz up to stance below roof. Proceed briefly into thin dihedral. Make challenging clip and move left sequentially to arete (crux). Cruise left side of arete to top.

Location 

Left side of Puppy Chow area. Left of mega-classic testpiece/arete Mango Tango (5.13d/14a), left of waterfall, past 3 mixed routes. Starts on stairstepped rock below obvious corner dihedral.

Protection 

6 bolts. 2 bolt anchor.

A really nice route but definitely sandbagged.

Though it's possible to traverse right under the roof, it's probably easier (and safer) to climb into the dihedral and make a really thin traverse left *after* clipping the bolt on the face.

Definitely agree with the above comment. committing to the crux traverse (which is fun but hard for 10c) and then falling before clipping the third bolt would be land you on the slab and be legitimately dangerous. Do two moves up into the dihedral and clip the third bolt, and then either downclimb back into the crux (which I did) or move left above on the thin looking traverse.
