The route climbs good rock and serves as a second pitch to such routes as Wedunett or Crater Maker. It is the rightmost of the two bolted lines starting from the belay ledge. Nice smearing footwork is what it's all about.
4 bolts, bolted anchor

This is a very fun and well-protected climb! Be careful on the opening moves so as not to fall on your belayer. If you have friends who hate slab, this is a fun one to throw them at. ;-) The holds are practically non-existant but everything sticks real well.

This is the route to learn to trust your feet on. Great friction up microscopic holds. One of my favorites at Big Rock.

Also my first 10a. I've got to go back and do it again.
