Probably the most popular route at the Reef, and deservedly. After scooting around the exposed corner, climb the great vertical face and finger crack (5.9) to the roof. (optional 0.75 camalot on right in roof) Crank the roof on the right, and tiptoe back left up the face, clipping a bolt on the way. The second pitch is also great, but there's a scary 5.9 standup move 10 feet off the belay before you clip the bolt. Fun steep 5.9 to the top.

5 out of 5 stars A classic!

Just GREAT! it worth combining with Warm and Free. The finger crack is fenomenal, and the roof move just make it a classic.

3 out of 5 stars what an area

I think I screamed...haha
