Climbing Area Index / Crag Y / V (5.9)
Directions:  Begin in a small but distinctive right-leaning V-groove with a finger crack, at a high point in the base trail. The groove is actually a lower extension of the crack system that forms SPIDERLINE.
Description: This route has good rock, but can always use more brushing.
    Pitch 1: Climb the V-groove directly. At its top, move right a bit and join with the first pitch of THE DOORS, following cracks to the sloping Doormat ledge. 70', 5.9

    Pitch 2: About fifteen feet left of the dihedral pitch of THE DOORS is a second smaller corner system. Follow steep inside corners straight up, finishing with an overhang at the top. 60', 5.9

Gear: Standard Rack
Descent: rap the route
History:  June 16,1987 - George Hurley and Larry Hamilton climbed this route, inadvertently taking advantage of Andy Ward's trundling work on the top pitch.
