Description 

Fun route up the steepest part of rock at the crag. Make some reachy, crimpy moves to the first horizontal crack/ledge (optional gear here), stand up on large block that's perched on the ledge and get some gear in. Make several crimpy and balancy moves (crux 5.11 R; the R rating doesn't come so much from the length of the fall as the nature of the fall) up the overhang to the third horizontal crack feature under the biggest roof (and more gear). Reach up and right for more holds and cruise your way up to the top.


Location 

This route goes up the steepest prow on the wall. It's to the left of the unnamed 5.10a roof and right of the 5.11a called Crash Pad (Crash Pad climbs left of the arete).


Protection 

4 or 5 mid-sizedish cams. I can't remember what I placed, but there wasn't anything super small (finger sized) or anything big (fists). No nuts necessary. No fixed anchors on top.
