Description 

Follow the thin seam on the left side of the wall. When the seam ends step left and follow a flake to the ledge. Move right to the anchor.

Eds. The length of the route is listed as longer, since using a the 2 anchor bolts and a 100' rope will not allow you to belay your second from the ground. It was originally listed as a 30' route.


Location 

It is on the Short Slab Wall left of the steep section.


Protection 

Standard rack. Two bolt anchor.

A light rack to a #0.75 Camalot works.

Going straight up the from the seam rather than stepping left led to 2-3 fun slab moves that felt a bit harder than 5.6, maybe 5.7? I did it on toprope, and this was the most direct line. Would be run out on lead though.

I have to agree with Andy, going straight rather than following the seam all the way right is definitely stiffer than a 5.6. Relative to most of Clear Creek, this crag is a bit sandbagged.
