One of the best in the desert. Start with powerful moves around a roof to a pumpy overhanging lieback. Cop a nice rest and charge up the gorgeous off-finger spliter, with pods. Finish in a flare with fingers in the back.
Starts just to the left of a large pillar, which keeps the bottom of the route in the shade until the afternoon. Scramble 30 or so feet up to a nice shelf to start the climb.

FA Steve Hong, plaque and book have grade discrepancies but no matter. Great route, thanks for adding it!

Thanks Timmy...I added the FA. Yeah, the plaque says 11+. I could see if you're a really strong laybacker, like Hong was, that it would feel about that grade. For my pussy laybacking skills, it felt like 5.12 to me.

The best route at a mediocre crag- the layback sprint at the beginning gives it some punch
