Starts at the left end of a ledge above a water seepage, just left of Twisted Pistol. Move left from the belay at two large blocks past another block, then up through a crack system. Reachy but good pro. Dixie Cragger's Atlas rates this at 5.8+. NOTE: this route can also be started from the cliff trail by climbing the first section of Bishop of Krunk, then working right under a roof to the ledge.

Descent Options:

Rap from anchors.

4 out of 5 stars cool challenge

I got on this by toproping the first part of Krunk to get to the ledge start, which entails making an unpleasantly wet and dirty roof pull. The climbing is sustained, with a number of committing sidepull or crimpy moves that lead to good but reachy horizontal holds. Good pro almost all the way. A very nice and challenging climb!
