This route sits two routes right of Assholes of August, but starts on August and traverses right to a nice, long, technical face that rewards those who love small crimps.

Clip your belayer in, and solo up the start of August (or bring a hand sized cam or two and long runners) for 10', then traverse right on a good edge for your feet to the first bolt. Instead of heading straight up (10d), surf out right and follow the next bolt line to a good anchor.


Two routes right of the obvious crack (Assholes of August).


9 bolts, anchor, anchor kit for belayer.
