Description 

The route begins by pulling up onto the rock at a low overhang and then bouldering up face holds through sometimes awkward moves, trending right as you move up until you get to a overhang with slot and undercling features underneath (i vaguely recall a strenuous undercling, awkward gear placements, and that the rock can be slippery or have a polished texture down low). Crank up and over and onto erosional features (chickenheads, knobs, plate-like things, erosion grooves) through to the top.

The top of the cliff is likely to be brushy. I don't think anyone has climbed this one in a long while.

This is a darn good route for the grade


Location 

Once in the Grahams Crack staging area, facing the cliff, proceed left, scrambling up to an adjacent higher level and another wall section. This wall is sometimes called Revelations Wall because there is a route called Revelations (5.11a) on it.

S.A. is the first route you will come to at the top of the scramble. To its right is an intriguing chimney/gully feature that may or may not contain a worthy new route. Water will seep or drip in this area if rainfall is seasonally high.

There are additional routes past this one.
