Description:

Located a few feet left of the start of No Paynes..., left of the small dihedral, on the high-angle slab. Up to a small shelf, then up onto the face, following the bolts to the lip of the cliffline. Pro might seem a little runout to some, and the stances are not all "easy"; but it's a good route for the 5.9 leader. Mike Balossi, Jeff Stockton; 11/03.

5 out of 5 stars super fun

Route is exposed to a lot more sunlight since a big tree fell.
