Description 

The opening few moves are thin. A little higher was a strech move to gain the only bolt at about 20 feet up. Climb easy ledges to the crack another 20 feet up and sink some gear. Bring a sling and you can equalize several cams. Climb easy knobs and ledges above, merging with "Ankles Away", sharing the same anchor. (Note: This is how I climbed the route. I didn't see anchors for this route specifically, though the Croft/Lewis book shows anchors.)

A good spicy challenge in the otherwise heavily bolted hills. Take great care not to break holds to avoid long falls.

Protection 

1 bolt + cam(s) at the high horizontal crack. I brought a .75, 1 and 2 C4 and they all fit in the crack.
