Description 

Left most line on the left side of milky way. The start is still a little loose but it getting better. The upper slab has perfect rock but the holds can be a little tricky. Don't be afraid to use the "Wormhole." A shallow 2-finger pocket to the right of the first bolt on the clean upper slab.


Protection 

6 bolts and chains

Getting to it (scrambling up the loose dirt, etc) kinda sucks. The route starts out on good crimps, up to a cool little slot part, and then onto the rad, clean upper headwall/slab.

We named this route after a really neat, shallow, 2-finger pocket at the start of the headwall.

Definitely a little loose on the bottom half, but the crux (at least for my climbing partner and I) on the face above was clean. Worth doing.
