Description 

Slightly thuggy with a touch of sharp rock.
Start on the right side of the Caught up in the Air "ledge" at a beautiful left facing crack/corner. Climb the clean corner to a stance at the roof leading to the arch feature. Get in a big piece and finagle your way over the roof into the arch past some questionable rock and a few jams. Get a big piece and jam and layoff the arch to a stance at the end of the feature. Exit left here to the Caught Up anchor or climb to the top of the cliff in one long pitch passing old bolts with gear and new upgraded bolts to the top. Was done originally in two pitches with a one bolt anchor.


Location 

In between Caught up in the Air and Wyoming Dick.
Rap the route with two 60m ropes.


Protection 

Standard NC Rack up to a #4 BD Camalot.

this is a much overlooked gem. Rock quality is fine albeit gritty. Do it in one pitch for good times. Tops at a ratty sling on a pine tree. Traverse 30 ft left to rap off Caught Up In The Air ( anchors may be hiding behind a small little tree but they are there)
