Description 

Fun, overlooked gem of a route. Starts just to the right of Geekin' Hard. Starts off with a tough little 11a boulder problem and then moves into a sustained 10a hand crack. "10a+" I'd say. The next 2 pitches we linked to the top without much problem, but they involve a couple balancey traverses and one big mantle to an easyish finger crack to the top.

Location 

Around the corner from cottage cheese. See picture.

Protection 

Standard rack to 2.5" some bolts.
