A steep and tense climb over big pockets and sharp edges. Short and stout, a subtle right leaning traverse across the face gains the anchors. A rather homogeneous Black Rocks route, but a good tick if you're in the area or want "one more for the road".


Located at the farthest west end of the Shady Side, this is currently the third to last route on the wall.


Five bolts and a rap anchor.
