This route starts just right of Slut Puppy, just left of Big Men, Small Airplanes. Stem from a boulder onto the wall, then up and right into a left-facing corner. Move up to a small roof, then to the right around a sharp arÍte, then up to a ledge (the top of the roof). Traverse left across a sketchy slab, then up to the top. A challenging 5.8. [note: new Dixie Cragger's Atlas has upgraded this to 5.9]

I really enjoyed this route; it has some nice variety between vertical climbing and traversing. The move left after the roof is pretty much no hands, you have to really trust your feet. Very satisfying for me as a beginner to make it on the first try!
