Description 

On the severly long and pockety southest face, climb the left side of the slab. Climbing begins in a flakey crack system and then heads directly up the left side of the face. Climbing is simple until the first bolt is reached, which is about 15 feet from the top. Once clipped in, a committing handless slab smear will scare the hell out of a 5.9 leader. The long move is fun, but climbing on the route other than that doesn't get this route any more stars.


Protection 

1 bolt about 55 feet off the ground. There are several places where cam placements are good, but not required. The lone bolt serves as protection for the crux, and other climbing on the route is probably 5.3, with the exception fo the first 2 moves.

Great warmup route. Practically a ladder.

A nice moderate route . Fun pockets with a tenuous little slab finish at the top. Worth doing.
