Description 

Start by laybacking to reach out left to reach the beginning of the arete. Crux is pulling up into the arete from a heel hook and trying to get a stance to clip the 2nd bolt. The climb eases up considerably once you pass the 2nd bolt. Nice bouldery moves at the begining. This route is easily top roped by climbing Flirting with the Mutants, 5.11b to the right.


Location 

Locate the obvious arete about 20 feet to the right of Flying off the Handle, 5.12b.


Protection 

4 bolts, shuts.

Haha ok. Well I really enjoyed this route. It's a good relief from classic "crimp and pimp" style harder routes. Strong and interesting beta with a good variety of moves.
