Description:

This route starts 10' right of Sir Climbalot in the next crack system. Its the second to last route on the wall. Climb the corner, pull the bulge (Crux), then head up the low angle slab to the top. Head up to the anchor mentioned in Sir Climbalot. Watch the loose rock, and place a #3 cam (or some other piece) to keep your rope out of the barrel cactus. Single rope rappel. Great route, worth the climb!
