This climb is the second pitch of An act of strange boar. From the Strange boar ledge, start up the hand crack just right of where strange boar ends. From the top of this short crack, go up and slightly right into a slot. Stem the slot (funky moves, 5.8+) to reach a nice perch on top of a pedestal. The anchor has two bolts and chains.
A few hand-sized cams for the start, then small stoppers or small cams for the slot.

Thanks Derek for cleaning this one off. Short and still scruffy as of 4/15/2010, but really entertaining and a nice warm-down pitch. A great teaser for what will be someday be a very fun full-length route.

Yeah, Derek did a fantastic job cleaning off this line. The route is a blast, with interesting, fun, and well-protected moves. It also has an excellent belay stance at the top. I'd give it more stars if it were longer.
