Meat and potatoes,scruffy crack climbing is what this route is all about. Head up an easy hand crack to the first roof (crux) where you engineer a way to jam or crimp your way out and over of it. Keep jamming away for a few moves, trend right, and establish yourself in the alcove where you'll need to again find a way to surmount the roof. Twenty more feet of scruffy climbing guard the cordalette slung tree that is your anchor.
Just right of Caroline Crocker and the Tipple of Doom.
Lots of hand sizes. BD #4 will be useful at the crux. A cordalette slung around two bomber trees with two biners made up the anchor as of 5/31/12. All were in good shape.
