Description 

I don't really think there was a crux on this route, there always seems to be a jug right where you need it. Very fun and easy climbing all the way to the top. Great warm-up for the other climbs in the area.

Location 

Twenty feet to the right of Pulp Friction. GPS 33836 13829.

Protection 

Four bolts and plenty of spots for small cams. No fixed anchors at the top, but plenty of trees.

CAREFUL- the flake people used for gear near the top is a sounds a little hollow and likely could not take a fall at certain placements. Furthermore one of the trees at the top is dying- the bigger ones off to climbers left are better options to build anchors on.

Anyways, this climb is pretty fun and easy.

I second that. There are a couple flakes near the top. One is definitely loose. I wouldn't protect under any of them. The whole route is fairly easy with positive edges the whole way, but if you're feeling runout near the top, there is a textbook green C3 placement in a horzontal slot just before the loose flakes on your way to the ledge just below the tree. Fun route.
