Description 

This is a pumpy endeavor after the first bolt. It starts in the crack system below, but the crux is pulling your butt over the obvious roof. =) This involves a sweet heelhook and a series of crimps once over the top.

One note: If you are attempting to toprope this route, be careful of your rope snagging on the third bolt as you pull over the roof!

Location 

The is the first route you encounter as you head down the staircase, and is the southmost route at the Lower Ledge Wall. Just think, "where is the overhang that will cause my feet to fly into mid-air?" =)
