Description 

This is a variation start for High Me, Zits, Morning Glory, or Steps. It's the short slab right of the right-leaning ramp which is listed as the start of Steps in Boston Rocks.


Location 

This is just left of the left-leaning ramp that Zits and Morning Glory start on.


Protection 

A pad to protect the landing would be a good idea. Other than that, there are TR anchors at the top.

A nice, varied route on clean rock. The crystalline features on this route are amazing, I felt like i was back in Tuolume. It is a bit of a run between the second and third bolt with the crux right in the middle, I don't think I would call it "R", but it commands respect.

Very fun, worth every delicate move. Extremely fun and rewarding to stick the top, not to mention relieving. The less daring could pre-place a cam at the top flake easily enough, but I think it would be much better without. Three stars if it weren't so damn short.
