Description 

Crux is getting over a small bulge on the first pitch right after the first bolt. The rest of the pitch is 5.10+ friction. Backs off quite a bit after that and joins up with Strawberry Preserves (and several other routes) to the top. IMO the hardest slab route on the south face of Stone (the stuff on the far left side is really face climbing).


Location 

Located immediately to the left of Strawberry Preserves. Rock is darker and smoother than most of the south face.


Protection 

Bolts with typical Stone Mountain spacing and ring anchors at the belays. While the crux is close to a bolt you could still take some longish falls while doing hard 5.10 moves after the crux.
