Description 

This isn't my route, but its been there for at least 2 years and nobody has written it up. So, to complete the list, here I go. (I made up the name since I hate "unknowns.") It had loose blocks two years ago, and has a doozie standing there today, with an "X." Worth doing if you're collecting the full set.


Location 

Sorry I don't have a photo, but it's the obvious bolt line between High Hard One and Group Therapy. If you belay at the tree just above the rap anchors, it's 97 feet up to the top. Head up the easy blocks/slab to the bolt and continue to the bad black band (beware loose blocks here). Continue up the face/cracks just to the right of the right-facing dihedral to an overhang/bulge and up to the anchors.


Protection 

10 or 11 QDs to some knock-off Mussy Hooks.

There does not appear to be loose blocks on this anymore.
