Description 

A short section of easy slab gains the first bolt at the base of bulging section split by twin crack/seams. Power over the bulge on surprisingly good holds and then finish up a groove with a crack to anchors.


Location 

Left side of the Slide Zone Area at a section of slabby rock. This is currently the 7th bolted route from the left (or 5th route from the right).


Protection 

7 bolts, ring anchors (shared with Burnout, Tailspin)

Strenuous for a 5.10b but the real kicker is how much bird crap is all over the top of the route. Most likely due to the elephant-sized hawk that nests on the tree 5' above the anchors. This and the routes near it are so slick from the bird crap that it's best to avoid the area (unless you're like us and go out on a day when every other route is occupied).
