Description 

After climbing up trash to reach a ledge, start off up and right past a bolt or two to reach some right-facing flakes. These will take good gear, and I particularly found a red and green Camalot useful. The crux is stepping to the right onto some slopers for feet- off of some side pulls and is not far from protection. The moves are heads-up, and fun, but not dangerous. Finish hard right at the end to reach a 2-bolt anchor with chains.

The route is OK, but needs a little cleaning up. Probably not the best gear route to push one's grade on.


Location 

Start just to the right of Ruff Roof and left of Just Moo It, above a ledge with 2 large trees--one alive and one dead. The route is hard to spot because of the trunks in the way at first.


Protection 

A few QDs, 2 bolts, and a set of cams from fingers to 2.5"

Maybe it was just the end of the day, but, for the average ape-index or shorter climber, this felt significantly stiffer than Sofa Kingdom, more equivalent to the easy version of Bull Fight. It's a bit licheny, especially the start. Cams to #1 Camalot were useful. Don't clip that last bolt of Just Moo It.
