Description:

Praised as the best 5.5 at Bon Echo. 3 pitches, possible to combine first and second. Climb first pitch past a cedar tree to belay at a ledge with juniper bushes. For the second pitch follow the ramp (start in dihedral, the head out towards bolt on the route) until you reach a ledge with two bolts. Third pitch, head up and left until you reach a large ledge and an overhang. Pull through the overhang and belay at two bolts.
