Description 

Start off the ledge 6 feet up and launch right into the boulder problem crux of the route, which involves moving right on small holds and then up past the 2nd bolt to two small crimps. The boulder problem culminates with a deadpoint up to a good flat hold at the 3rd bolt. Big reaches to sloping holds deposit you at a wobbly jug for a good shake and a high reach to clip the 4th bolt. Move left and pull a cool roll over move and continue up on small sloping crimps past 2 more bolts. A second crux near the top involves pulling an the remnants of a bolted on flake and small sidepulls. Moving up to the jugs on Hinterland is the last bit of this route and the difficulty backs off, its a bit run out when you are clipping the anchors but the fall is clean and the climbing is easy at this point.


Location 

In between Flippin' the Bird and Hinterland.


Protection 

6 bolts to rap rings. I recommend stick clipping the second bolt because the clipping hold is small and it is a strenuous clip. If you fall you are swinging into the jagged portion of the ledge.
