Description 

Slippery jugs and sidepulls with now-you-see-them-now-you-don't feet to a good rest.

Following the rest comes the crux: A tricky, strenuous roof problem that is all about feet. The bit past the crux is exciting due to lingering crux-pump.

Finally, a bit of nerve-wracking (you don't want to blow it here, now do you?) traverse moves with poor feet to the chains.


Protection 

8 bolts to a 2 chain anchor.


Location 

Second line from the right on the lower (right-most) part of Membrane.

Its on the far right of the crag, left of Riptide, Bill Boyle did the FA and the roof is funkadelic.

The first 4 bolts is not a gimme. Go straight up and trend left with 3-4 bolts a bit run out. Hand jams, underclings, side pulls with tension specific foot holds keep u on the wall. Find the arm bar or knee bar rest in the cave area before the obvious crux. Power thru the crux on thin holds and find some relief up higher. It's all about your foot sequence. Ouch my fingers hurt after climbing this thing.
