Brian seconding the route.


This is the wavy finger crack to the left of Party in your Pants. This is an excellent climb that protects better than it looks. Solid finger locks and tricky stems all the way to the top.

The hangers were removed as of April 2010, so you need to move left across a column which skips the hardest move of the climb if you traverse low.


This is the first climb to the left of the popular Party in your Pants.


up to 3" cams with lots of mid-sized stoppers and one bolt.

Mostly micros, didn't place anything larger than a red (crappy & optional) Camalot. Traversed out when level w hanger less bolts. Good route.

I was climbing this last Nov. and Jim Yoder was there, he says Marlene Ford made the first ascent. I guess someone stole the hangers, this still happens at Vantage.
