Description:

Starts from the ledge of either Ginger Snap or Cinnamon Slab. The climb follows the angled arete on the right hand side of the Karate wall. Exposed!

Descent Options:

There are a few sets of anchors to rap off of, just be aware of climbers below, this area is always very busy. Rap to the intermediate ledge at the beginning of the pitch and make a second rap down Ginger Snap. Or, if you have two ropes and no one is on

Ladybug swung lead on this after my Cinnamon Slab red point. Easy until the top, then it gets a little spicy.

Cool bolted climb,going into exposure.I liked climbing the left side of the bolt line.This gives you a greater feeling of exsposure.After the last clip,head diagnally left and up.Theres good holds and a awesome view of the valley floor!I believe even 5.8 climbers would love this route.Its easy climbing,just a little heady ,maybe?
