High on the west face of Fraggle Rock is where you'll find this slabby moderate which sits above a large ledge system midway up the formation. Easily approached by doing either Prozac Crack (5.8) or Stairway To Kevin (5.8) and walking left on the ledge to the base, or by doing Tiers For Fears (5.10d R or 5.10b) and downclimbing easy cracks to the base of the route.

Adequately protected friction and edges up good quality rock mark this route which ends at the top of the crag. Descend by downclimbing back to the base and following the ramp system along the base of Scattered Remains (5.10c) or by heading north and accessing the rap anchors atop The Still (5.10c) and Poppin And Breakin' (5.10a).

This is a fun moderate that's worth the walk not just for the climbing in a remote-feeling area, but for the rich history of the area. Two stars out of five.


3 bolts (1/4"), pro to 3" for anchors
