This a decent warmup to other harder slab routes at Cedar. The climb takes good, but spaced gear at times. Probably several variations to the climb, due to its wandering slab nature. Double ropes not a bad idea, otherwise sling most pieces up high long.

Start below a series of right facing crescent shaped flakes. Move through this to a steep series of slab moves on good edges to a section of semi-detached blocks. Skirt right around the blocks, then straight up (this section is shared with Cedar Pie). When you are parallel to Cedar Pie's bolt out left, move up and right through eye brows to a good stance at the base of a left leaning ramp. Follow the ramp to the quartz dike below the anchors. Move left on the dike and exit up when it looks easy.


The route starts about 20' right of Cedar Pie. Look for the series of right facing crescent flakes. 2 60m ropes to rope. Anchors on the obvious white ledge below the large horizontal dike.


Doubles in the small sizes, singles in the medium hand size to #1 camalot. Tri-cam's work well on this route. No bolts, all trad! Double bolt anchor shared with Cedar Pie.
