Description 

This route is phenomenal the entire way. Sustained technical sidepulling and crimping will test your endurance and footwork.

The opening moves are probably the most difficult. Figure out how to make the first few steps onto the rock to get to the start of the ramp. Plug a hand-sized piece of pro before getting to the first bolt. Begin moving up and right following the ramp feature past 3 bolts, a piton, and another bolt. Milk a good rest then punch it up and right past a bolt on the very thin and sustained face. Clip another bolt below the small roof before getting into the seams. The seams take great nuts or small cams. Trend slightly left for the anchor.

This route dries very quickly and is often one of the few lines open if everything else is seeping.

Location 

This route starts just left of Pussy Footin' and Flaming Lips. It is easy to see the ramp that rises up and right. The piton after the 3rd bolt is pretty obvious as well. A 60m will get you down. This route dries quickly after a rain.

Protection 

6 bolts, a piton, a hand sized piece, and some nuts/small cams. Two bolts with carabiners.
