From Percival's '91 guide: "5.9+, located on left side of south face of Red Headed Rock Pecker Tower. Reputed as having difficult 3rd clip". Stiff rating for this short overhanging route. Big pockets, but pumpy and steep enough to feel 10ish. Fun little route!

One hang. Finding the correct clipping hold for 3rd bolt can take its toll!
