Description 

A rarely repeated route for hardman status. Start on a technical face left of Blue Chock or climb the initial layback on Blue Chock. Either way, end up at a stance just below the bulge feature on Blue Chock with underclings. Climb unprotected 5.9 up and left to a seam.
Keep on trucking to a fixed pin that leads to a bolt. Pull the crux and hold on to a stance. From here climb up through the overhangs with decent pro.

Location 

Located right in between Head Jam and Blue Chock.

Protection 

Take a light rack of standard cam sizes and nuts. Double ropes are recommended. Many descent options, either side has 4th class down climbs via gulleys, or locate a fixed rap anchor near Welcome to Moore's.
