Description:

This route starts just to the left of the base of the shady tree (where the squirrels WILL attack your food if you leave it out) and to the left of I Forgot to Have Babies. Follow the crack system up the slabby ramp and then traverse left under the wide offwidth onto another slabby face. The topout is wide, balancy, and the best part of this route!

Descent Options:

From the top of the route, move right and to the back of the rock. Keep moving up and right until you find the rap anchors at the top of A Hot Fudge.

1 out of 5 stars Squirrels attacked my trail mix!

An wholly unremarkable climb compared to the others ten feet away on the same wall.

3 out of 5 stars First lead of the season!

This was a good warm up in brand new territory for me! The top out is tricky and fun, but don't let the rope drag get turn this into a 5.9 climb. It helps to put a super long sling on that piece just before the traverse left. Also, don't let the squirrels attack your food while you're up there!
