Description 

Follow the air conditioned crack (thin hands; crux) up to a ledge. Continue on somewhat broken rock to the top. A fun lead that takes good gear. The broken rock towards the top is a little suspect, but i felt pretty good about all my placements there.

Location 

From the Indian Head feauture continue left around the rock scrambling to the based of the crack.

Protection 

Standard rack. A few extra thin hands sized pieces if you really want to sew up the bottom crack. Standard top rope setup, maybe a little extra webbing, I remember the placements being a bit spaced out.

Four stars for the cold air on hot days. Great to warm up/cool down on.

Boo to the person who marked the top of the route with paint to make setup easier to find.

Topped out on lead today to hear loud buzzing sound - huge bee hive in the tree about 20 feet out from the route. Bees of some kind were swarming en mass

one move wonder down low makes for the technically crux of the climb. I could see people making this harder than 5.7. mental crux up top on the slab the poorly protects and in reality is quite run out although if you did fall it would be back to the ledge. i could also see new leaders hesitate at that point. either way it's a fun and honest 5.7.
