Starts up the hill (off the trail) and to the left of Jams and Shams. A right curving wide and flaring crack at mid height is the dead give away your at the route. Climb up a expanding flake and look for pro in horizontals. Put a big guy in at the bottom of the flaring crack and jam through the crux to good face holds. Follow face holds to the top.

Descent Options:

Rappel off of large pine tree, no fixed anchors.

3 out of 5 stars Good route that doesn't see much action

Set a top rope on this after climbing Nuclear Blue. Sussed out the pro and it looks really solid. A painful hand jamming section awaits those who get out of sequence.

Edit: And then I led it (8/9/08), the pro is good until about 15 feet from the top but the climbing eases up quite a bit. Watch out for snakes on the approach trail.
