Probably the best stretch of rock of any route off the tree ledge. I always used to skip that last bolt because the natural "line" of holds was a little to the left, but the climbing is easier up there so it' really not a big deal.

Was told a few years back that the name comes from the fact that the fa party suspected the "squeezed in line" might cause some controversy. Not sure if that is true.
