Description 

The routes starts at the in the middle of a large overhanging face. The beginning is the most difficult. Look for a beak placements in small flaring pods, usually closed off. These pods will lead to a right stepping crack. at the end of that crack will be a horizontal seam with a fixed piton. Take the seam left until a blocky crack on the left side of the face. This will lead to a very enjoyable crack 2/3 the way up and will lead to the top.

Location 

As you arrive at the creek from the approach trail head left. crossing the creek several times will be required. this will be the first wall encountered with an obvious crack 2/3 the way up.

Protection 

the first 5 placement are body weight only, requiring several beaks, copperheads and a #2 and #3 nut. a fall here will test your ankle bones. the rest of the route requires many finger and hand cams along with a leeper and a KB for the horizontal.
