BETA PHOTO: Red line is Benny Goodman.

Description 

From the base of the large Jitterbug corner, climb up right to the left-pointing flake (5.7), step L to the outside corner, surmount the overhang, and climb the steep upper face just L of the arete. A great powerful crux sequence that is harder than 10c to figure out.

Location 

30 feet Left of the Mya wall

Protection 

TR only. Don't anchor off the pitch pine. Pad the top edge.
