Description 

Best start is off of the anchors at the base of Sasquatch. Work left a bit and then climb the thin crack with the tree (small) at the base of it. Work this crack until you get to the undercling flake, clip a bolt and start slabbing up and a bit left. Quality slabbing will get you to the top. A very nice route.


Protection 

3 bolts on this line. Slung tree for the anchor (Pentapitch's), and small gear for the initial crack. Could not find the pin from the book.

A great line that isn't anywhere near as continuous as, say, Kermit's. Still 10a, but with nice big holds between 10a moves. A lot less spooky now with the new hardware. The PG13 part is right b4 the anchor and isn't that bad as the holds are decent.
