Description 

A short climb that arches left up a face, I starts at a easy angle with the first bolt being about 20 feet up. It gets more difficult as the angle increases. Follow the line of bolts to a ledge with a chain anchor.

Location 

The furthest left route on Alex Wall. This is the clean slab on the west side of the Back Of Beyond. Facing directly east, it gets sun till around 2:00. It is easily identified while climbing The Journey Home.

Protection 

Quickdraws. A few pieces to suppliment the spaced bolts if runouts over easy ground scare you.

A easy second pitch was added to the top of this route. Climb 5.5 up the arÍte past two bolts to the peak of the slab. Belay off natural gear on the top. There are a set of chains back and left (10-15 yards) from the summit. One rope (60m) will get you to the chains of the first pitch. This second pitch is choss but still fun for whomever likes to tip toe around on suspect rock. I had both feet cut loose but held it together because the terrain was easy and low angled. Of course the chossmaster Pete the Meat was on the first ascent team. He thought the rock was bomber!
