Description 

This obscure route is a worthwhile trad lead amongst the short sport routes on the West Side Rock, with a challenging start and good protection.

Boulder up the slightly overhanging face to a somewhat slopey horizontal seam, then follow the path of least resistance to the top. The harder bottom section gives way to easier ground with plenty of features.


Location 

Starts just left of Thin in the Middle. Rap from the anchors.


Protection 

Good nut placements and cams up to #2 camalot or equivalent. Bolted anchors with quicklinks at the top.

The upper section is casual climbing, but the lower half is a serious lead. Pulling the bulge with thin pro and unintuitive moves got my adrenaline going.

The gear placements are not as obvious as on other 7's. This is not a route for a first trad lead, but a fun climb none the less.
