This route has a little bit of everything...fingers, off-width, over-hang, face climbing...
Climb through an over-hanging section to a ledge. Climb the thin fingers dihedral until it widens to OW. Work your way up this to a ledge with anchors on a large boulder.
I gave this a "PG" rating because of the start and the boulder below it.
Located left of Calypso II and American Crack/Wall. Route start is "marked" with a large boulder at the base.
Trad. Rap Anchors at top.

While standing there looking at the route making excuses to not climb (raining, tired, hungry, etc) my friend and I watched a rat run out of the cubby hole on the crux crack rocket straight up it with no problems. We saw that as a sign and had no choice to do it. Best 5.9 trad lead ever! Great start to finish.
