Description 

Start with a reachy move to gain a ledge, then follow the seam/crack until it peters out and the angle steepens. Crank through the crux zone and work your way onto "The Ramp". A final headwall with positive but pumpy holds guards the anchors. Old school bolt spacing adds some excitement!


Location 

Located a couple hundred feet left of the Sunkist Slab, this route climbs up the middle of a pear shaped face. It is the second bolted line to the right of the obvious Intimidator Roof crack. Start at a small pine tree growing off the ledge.


Protection 

9 bolts to chain anchors.
