A short but worthwhile route on quality stone. Makes a good warm up or combines well with the Zipper, Sideshow, Davis Holland for a moderate day of UTW craging.

Start by climbing up the right side of a large flake, no pro but its easy and juggy. Clip a bolt and pull on to a slab (easier than it looks). The climbing above in the corner involves stemming, liebacks, high steps, and the usual Index trickery.


left side of the lower cheeks. The start is on a mound that sits higher than the rest of the routes at the lower cheeks


Six draws plus biners for the anchor. The anchor is the start of the Perverse Traverse.

The route has very fun, somewhat tricky moves between good rests.

There are only six bolts, but they are in just the right places.

The route can stay dry in a light rain, as do a number of other nearby routes.
