Short, sweet and STEEP!
Overhanging hands to fingers with a thin-hands crux.
Poorly-placed bolt anchor on a small detached vibrating block (see photo to right - someone wanna move this?).
Mitch Musci battles the thin-hands crux and likes ...

WARNING!!!! DO NOT RAP OFF THIS ANCHOR!!! MAJOR DEATH POTENTIAL!!!
Ditto on the absolutely sketchy anchor placement. That block is very loose!! I can't believe that I saw ASCA stamped on the hangers!! WHOMEVER PUT THIS NEW ANCHOR IN NEEDS TO HAVE THEIR DRILL TAKEN AWAY FROM THEM AND THEIR BOLTING PRIVILEGES REVOKED!!! Aside from some alpine anchors, this is the scariest one I have ever seen and one of the poorest examples of "Safe Climbing" ever!!
The proper bolting "local authorities" have been notified!!
Cool, short route otherwise!!

Great route...but an absolute ASS KICKER. Short, steep and fierce.
Never noticed the vibrating block...did notice that the anchor placement itself is just STUPID...lots of that in Little Egypt.
