Description 

A really fun route that is easy to miss as you explore PK's east end. Layback the crack in the starting cave to a ceiling, traverse left then blast up the crack. Lots of lichen but it doesn't really interfere with the climbing, and should clean up with more traffic.

Location 

Starts in a cave behind a boulder stack about 50' L of East Pillar. Approach the cave from the right or tunnel through from the base of Rainy Daze.

Protection 

Supplement a normal rack with at least a couple pieces (cams or Big Bros) in the 4 to 7 inch range, and it's G rated.
