Description:

Starts in a chossy left-facing corner right of Sour Balls. Poor gear, but easy climbing. Continue up to a higher left-facing corner, the crux. Solve the riddle. Climb open book and stacked blocks -- careful what you pull on -- to a final roof and then to the fixed anchor. If the anchor looks bad, top it out.

2 out of 5 stars Sour Grapes

Easy climbing before and after a tough awkward move. A good intro to Sauratown trad section.

3 out of 5 stars One Move Fun

Found it hard to remember the sequence, but eventually found the little crimp left of the corner.
