Description 

Great climbing with a bit of a bold edge... If you like low angle face and crack climbing with a dash of spice this one is for you... The crack was really dirty for a while but it looks like its seen a good cleaning...

Pitch one: 5.7 Just left of Short Order's start climb a crack to the same ledge as Short Order... Or just walk around to the left and up to the same ledge if you just came for the business...

Pitch 2: 5.9R Climb up the slightly featured face above the ledge past a pocket, then a pin, and finally a bolt... Clip the bolt and follow a faint dike up and to the left before making a hair raising move in to the sweet "thank god" crack... Climb the crack which is nice and more relaxed up to the same tree anchor as Short Order...


Location 

Right Between Short Order and Sleeping Beauty...


Protection 

Normal rack plus some tri-cams...

Great route, glad you did it. I don't think it sees much traffic.

Direct start- 5.10 RRR . Protected by a big skyhook in a pocket. Up the scoop. Nice moves and you might not die.

Really tricky but fun first Pitch. Gear is finicky at best...particularly at the top before the pin. Great little route. Wish it saw more travel!
