Description 

A fantastic sport climb using small edges and sidepulls to move across a disquietingly blank-looking wall. The moves all work out and its easier than it appears from the ground. Watch out for the sting in the tail, with a cruxy sequence coming just before the chains.

The large roofs above will keep this climb dry for a bit during the rain.

Location 

This route begins atop the large block/flake just left of the thin crack "Earwax". A belay bolt is in place, and the route moves up and right, with a 5.11+ direct start coming in from below around bolt #4.

Protection 

Fully bolted, with fixed 'biners in the chaines. Take 8 (or so) quickdraws.

Very fun route, especially the last few moves.
Compared to the other moderate on the wall, The Black Flag..., this route has more rests and seems slightly easier.
