Description 

Awesome climb, corner to layback to roof/corner to layback
Enduro-crux with solid placements all the way up!

This route has a bad habit of eating gear, so be careful with your placements so they don't become fixed gear!

Location 

climb is obvious overhanging corner on east side of main junkyard area

Protection 

Solid gear (normal rack), make sure not to leave it in the climb as there are always a few cams that are fixed somewhere in the initial arch of this climb.
