Description 

A play on words, this route was the scene of a very runout first ascent when the unknowing FA party started up an unfinished line and ran out the last two pitches without any of the current protection bolts!

P1) Smear, edge and mantle past six widely spaced bolts to an anchor on a large knob.

P2 & 3) Follow the crest of the rib, past bolts, to the top.

Rappel the route or walk off to climber’s right.

Location 

Approach as per Sticky Fingers, but break off to the right about 100’ above the highway onto an open rib. Continue up near the gully and a boulder-strewn ledge.
