Located on the left wall of a short gully 10 feet right of Spinach. Slabby, crimpy face with horizontal cracks for pro. The low crux feels tougher than 5.6.

2 out of 5 stars Shortcake

With Urioste clan. Handren does have it at 5.9 and that is soft, but true the first move or two off the deck are above 5.6. Worthy climb that protects well in those clean horizontals. Fixed rap/top rope above the route.
