A moderate route with a pretty out-of-character hard start (the crux), especially for shorter folks. The climbing above is pretty fun, but there are better routes at this grade on The Egg. Still, not a bad option if your in the area looking for a moderate.


Shares the base are of Mr. Greenwood, Sha Bi Ab Bi, and Pumpy Brewster -- trhis is the right most of these lines. To find this area, contour around from the North Face by walking left, through the cave, and along the base for about 40m or so to the first base area. Or, walk right around the base from the East (Fried Egg) face, staying high. Climb up the 2m step, walk just past the base of Wonderful World and co to find this group of routes.


Bolts to a fixed, 2 bolt anchor.
