Description 

This route is snuggled between Possessed by Elvis and Flake and Bake near the right end of the south Face.

A right-slanting crack above a horizontal yields some awkward climbing, followed by easier fun climbing above.

Recall placing a #3 camalot in the vertical crack at the top, in combo with a #.75 1, and 2 camalot in the horizontal. Seemed ok.

Neat down climb chimney! Takes you right back to the base of the routes.

Great route, great pro mostly hands and smaller. approach is nothing and there's a great cave for the belayer to get out if the sun. We walked of to the left of the route.
