Description 

An anomaly of sorts, this little pitch is completely different than its main approach pitch...Mainstreet. Crimp and smear on crystals to a two-bolt anchor with rap rings. The pitch is sustained until the last bolt.

Location 

Take either Mainstreet (10a offwidth) or The Never Ending Story (11b face) to a nice ledge where you'll see a line of 5 bolts up a slab.

Protection 

Quickdraws.

Very nice crystal pulling. Sustained and way fun.

One does not have to climb Mainstreet to approach this climb (although highly recommended); you can ascend any route that leads you to the top of the Coke Bottle (Walt's Wall or Fall Wall), and then rap to the starting belay station.

A fun and very different way to finish Mainstreet. Slabby with an abundance of small holds. Definitely easier than 5.9, however, and well protected the whole way. (Comparable more to Cold Finger on the Clamshell than Dropzone, maybe a 5.8 in between?)
