Description 

This climb is pretty short. It starts with an undercling layback aiming left for a sloping rail. From there it goes straight up following crimps and jugs up top.


Location 

The route is located on the secondary face. To get here walk left from the parking lot around the main area. Then take another left. (Don Quixote wall would be the right) The climb is on the left side of the wall and the start, marked with the undercling traverse is pretty obvious.


Protection 

I used a yellow C3 at the bottom and a clear alien up higher. The bottom could have been protected with a #6 camalot, and the top could be protected with a 2.5 tech friend or #2 camalot. You could protect again at the jugs up top, but they look a little loose.
