Description 

One of the few easier warmups for the area. Well protected undercling that meets up with the best part of Bloodsport


Location 

Between Snowflakes and Blooddrive/Bloodsport. About 30 feet uphill of Bloodline.


Protection 

Standard trad rack. Assorted gear and a few long runners. Look for a two bolt belay up and right from where the crack reaches a nice ledge.

A BD #5 protects the crux well. Fun

Found this route to be a one-move wonder. Although you can get two cams in at the very start of the undercling, you're still in ankle tweaking territory until your feet get established 5 feet off the ledge.

Once you're on the diorite, it's a cake walk past there.
