Description 

No single crux, just continuous highly-technical stemming in a smooth dihedral. On the lead the pro is solid but sometimes requires patience to find and get in. (and you won't likely be feeling real patient!) Nice spot for a belayer at the bottom of the route. Otherwise, toprope it and just enjoy the moves.


Location 

About 60' east of the Sugarplump Faeries slab. A good size tree right at the edge of the cliff lies directly above the dihedral.


Protection 

Mainly RP's to finger size stoppers, a couple larger sizes for the finish. Some very small cams might be helpful.
