The furthest east route at the Poultrygeist section of the Cockscomb, this fine route begins with a burly start on steep rock. Several long, shouldery reaches lead to a clean panel of beautiful orange and black basalt. After the hard start, easier moves on the vertical upper face lead to the anchor.
Furthest east (left) at this crag. The first route encountered in this section on the approach.
5 bolts, 2 open cold-shut bolts for anchor.

Description is right on. I found this route to be pretty straight forward by coxcomb standards. Probably one of the easier to read routes for me here. A good climb to onsight because the crux is low and there are nice rests and clipping holds.
