Description 

This route starts just right of the beautiful tufa that runs down the middle of the Kingdom of Ging. Pick your poison - mantle up on the ledge using a heel hook or lead in from the right. The first bolt occurs at your feet - probably not necessary to clip as a fall at this point will put you on the ground and the second bolt is easily accessible next to the tufa. Run past the second bolt through a thin, bulging section (10) and up towards an alcove. The technical crux occurs here - using a thin half moon, rock up onto a thin ledge. If you can get this without whipping off, the rest of the route is smooth sailing.

Location 

Leftmost route on Kingdom of Ging wall.

Protection 

about 4 bolts + anchors

This has to be one of my favorite routes in the area; bonus do to the lack of traffic here.

Could be my favorite route on the Green Belt. Just all around fun with a last move that will challenge your nerves on lead (very clean fall though).
