Description 

A fun steep start, then a short break, leads to a slight over hang on big holds. Up the face to a corner, around just to the left, then up to the anchor.


Location 

Located just to the right of Poking Holes in the Firmament and straight across from Twinkie and Ho Ho.

Rappel route.


Protection 

6 lead bolts to a two bolt anchor.

This is a really fun 5.8 - big patina holds, well bolted, and an enjoyable pull over the 4th bolt bulge.
