This route is an overlooked little gem. It is right next to pencil necked geek and shares its first pitch anchors. It makes a good start if you want to finish up on pencil necked geek as well.

Starts with a 10d boulder problem right off the deck, to some interesting crack and a mantle. The real fun part is the committing 10c lieback moves around the block. Once there, cut right and you're at the anchors.
