Face climb up Middle of Face. Step climb for the first 15 feet. Then move into some great holds Higher up. Great 5.7.
Located on a large boulder formation near the route "Bearded Lady". Only route on this boulder.
4 bolts and Fixed Anchors.

I don't think that the route described is Perfect Hair Forever- according to the guidebook and beta I've heard, this route is actually right at the entrance to the east end of the corridor, about 35', and I think four bolts. Great first lead, good chickenheads and good rock quality and good clipping stances. There's a tree sort of in front of the anchors, but it's not really in the way too much.

Seems to be a lot of confusion here. The route that we climbed is on burnt orange rock and is quite steep. It stays on you more than other 7s and 8s that I have climbed at the Ranch. Crux is pulling a huge roof-like runnel near the top. Talked to Jason Roy, and he says that he rated this route a 5.8 initially. It stumped one of our less experienced climbers. I agree, an 8 with a little change... Really cool route in every way!
