More of the lovely smooth 'Hawaii 5-O' rock form, on the same wall to the right. The start is also a boulder-style overhang, and keeps many off this route. Follow crack slightly to the right as the 5.9 line and hang rope on that side of top slab. The 5.10 line is straight up beneath anchors, can vary left for more 5.9 moves. Do this one before 'Hawaii'; but stay out of the Trail.

Descent Options:

Pool Hall gully, rim trail

4 out of 5 stars He made me do it.

Woody assured me that I could pull the start the way he did, and the rest would not be so difficult. Well, I did not quite get his start, but did get one. After that, the right line is super fun imo. Finishing under the anchors is not difficult, so hanging the rope on the normal side is cool.
