Description 

A few balancy face moves take you up to a secure chimney and then the top. Downclimbing this route is quite feasible.

Location 

This is left and around the corner from Sail Away and Wild Wind. It is in a deep chimney system which splits the two parts of the rock.

Going up the dirtier rock to the right of the chimney is fun. It makes the climb feel more continuous and flowy. And this doesn't change the grade, as the crux is in the face moves at the bottom.
