One of the better 60-foot sport routes of its grade in Washington. Climbs the overhanging arete to the right of Stress Management through a combination of left hand arete pulling and right hand edge cranking. The story behind the route's name is recounted in Jim Nelson's Selected Climbs of the Cascades, Vol. II.


On a leaning pillar to the left of Orange Sunshine.
