Description 

This route is fairly sustained for the grade. The crux is the lower half before you reach the overhang. Climb straight up the face using many sloping holds and crimps. Once you reach the overhang, the route eases up quite a bit. From the overhang, follow some dirty jugs to reach the shuts. The bolts on this route are spaced out a bit more than others in the area, very safe, but spaced a little further than most other routes in this area.

Location 

This route is the next line of bolts to the right of the open book (Aloha) in the Contact Zone area.

Protection 

8 bolts, shuts.
