Description 

This route would be two or three stars if not for the extremely difficult exit move at the top.

It starts with a very touchy stand-up on a thin flake feature. There is some easy climbing up to a deviously hard traverse section to the left. Some juggy moves lead to a good rest. More jugs on the lip of a bulge give promise to an easy finish only to encounter an extremely long reach to a thin sloping edge (crux!). Afterwards, some nice slab move lead to the anchors.

The rock is decent on this climb, and the route was originally rated 5.11a. The name of the route should have been a clue to its sandbagged nature.


Location 

This route is the second from the far right on "The Filing Cabinet".


Protection 

A few bolts at the bottom and a few at the top. Supplement with wireds and small cams.

Rusty, two-bolt chain anchor provided.
