Climb hands past some ledges in a L-facing corner/stem box to a roof. Traverse left to R-facing corner of stembox and pull roof with a hand jam and miraculous jugs. Climb varied L-facing corner to chains with fingers, hands, and OW. A superb "Second-tier" classic at this wall!


South facing side of way rambo 20 m right of The Inhabitants


at least triples from tips to fists and a #5 for the top.

The rumor is that this climb was named after the late Micah Dash. The neighboring climb, the hostess, was named after his longtime girlfriend, Amelia Patterson.
