Description 

Start left of Minnesota Fats at a thin hand crack. Climb up the left of two cracks. Great jams and stemming moves will get you over a flake/bulge. Continue up the crack to a tree and rap...or top out and walk off to the west.

A really good route that should clean up after more ascents.


Protection 

Gear up to a blue Camalot.

Gear up to #3.5 Camalot. The wall on the left side is still shedding and needs more of a scraping than a brushing. You can go left to the anchors for Golden Child to rap off.

Not to be an ass, but the YDS is supposed to rate by the hardest move on a route. This route is 8-/8 on that scale. That said it, it is a one trick pony, although the start is also solid 7. I managed to use high feet and the left pocket to hit the horn with my right at the crux. My second claims you can extend your right hand to a jug near the proper of Denver Nugget to power through the crux. Fun moves though.
