Directions:  This route starts 20 feet to the right of No Guts No Glory on a small separate buttress just right of a gully. Look for two ring rappel bolts at the top of a slab above an overhang and another bolt at the bottom of the slab.
Description: A very sweet climb with a single interesting move.
    Pitch 1: Climb an overhanging face with a perfect finger/layback crack. Clip the bolt out right at the bottom of the slab, pull over onto the slab and continue up on very easy ground to the anchor.

Gear: small cams or tricams for the start and one draw for the bolt
Descent: Rappel from anchors.
