Short, sweet. Located about halfway between Ruby's Cafe and Jane fonda's Workout. Begins on a boulder, and then climbs up a gradually widening crack. The rating is mostly because of its short length– it still has a tough off-fingers start.

3 out of 5 stars definitely a little tricky

Flailed on it on TR a few years ago. Got the RP. Not sure I'd bother with it again. Pigs in Space is a better warm up.

3 out of 5 stars _

I thought it was kind of scary wedging myself in behind that block at the start - kept thinking it's going to go someday. Don't let it crush your belayer!
