Start under a roof following a thin crack that varies to the right. It is wise to stick clip the first bolt.


15' right of Jody's Route.


Four bolts, shuts.

This route actually starts at the low roof with the hand crack but goes LEFT and up the face.

Actually Jeff, if you go left you are on Lolita's Deluge.

A burly start then very fun to follow. Definately stick clip. Belayer stand clear too.
