This is a good climb immediately right of Eat At Degnan's. It starts in 3" double cracks and heads up through a section of nice steep hands. Towards the top the crack thins to a seam (with a fixed Lowe Ball) and a crux traverse must be made to gain the crack to the left. A juggy knob right were you need it makes this improbable traverse easier than it first appears. Save a .5" piece to place after the traverse so the second has a directional. Rap from the same tree as you would for Eat At Degnan's.


Double set of cams to 3"

In the last few months someone has added a bolt at the crux and a bolted rap anchor at the top of the route. The rap anchor is a nice convenience I guess, and is can be shared by this route and Eat At Degnan's. The lead bolt is, imo, unnecessary.
