Description:

Starts on the backside of the Celebrity flake (behind the wall where A Walk in the Park, Train Time, etc. are located) on overhanging horizontal holds to a perfect lieback and jam crack at the half way point. Can be toproped by climbing Afternoon Delight or Jug Mania and dropping a rope of the anchors on the backside. The Watford guide rates the route at 5.11a but this seems really soft for the area; probably more like 10b.

Descent Options:

Rappel off fixed anchors

Superb route, crackolicious moves up top. Birds nest in the crack down load, watch for surprises.
