Description 

A fun route with some varied climbing and some steep upper climbing for a 5.9. Do a flexible move to get established on the slab and romp up a fun flake (reinforced with bolts) as the rock steepens. Climb big wandering pockets, trending left, as the angle kicks just past vertical near the anchors on big holds. May be 9+ for the shorter folks.


Location 

Located in the middle left section of the wall, immediately left of Stud Alert (10b)- which has the small roof just off the ground and the distinct roof near its top.


Protection 

7 or 8 bolts to anchors.

Very fun route! The last 15 feet get steep but are really exciting.

There were numerous wasps on this route. It made the pockets kinda scary.
