It's hard to think of anything to recommend about this contrived, choss-plagued route, but if you're looking for some afternoon shade on easy terrain, you might check this out after you've climbed all the other .10s at the Vault.

Climb up a distinct rib of rock, weaving from the chimney on the left to the chimney on the right to avoid the featureless rock on the bolt line. At the obvious bulge at mid-height the route offers the only meaningful entertainment moving directly up the bulge with long cranks between good holds. Above the bulge an easy slab on spikey, grey rock leads to the strangely-positioned anchor.


The first route right (N) of Easy Money, ascending an E-facing rib of rock defined by two chimneys.


Bolts to 2BA.

This route could possibly earn a single star if the bolt locations were better chosen; however, the final result kind of sucks. Why try to force the line where it doesn't want to go?
