Directions:  This route follows an almost direct line up to the left edge of the BIG overhangs which are left of The Open Book.
Description: The name comes from the conditions: wet rock and swarms of millions of vicious ladybugs that squashed yellow under the hands and feet of the first ascensionists.
    Pitch 1: Start at an off-width/chimney leading easily to a large ledge. Climb up and left to a down-sloping shelf, then up slightly overhanging rock to a good ledge below the crux. The crux is a strenuous layback with the narrow left wall overhanging and the right wall being vertical.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: rappel the route
History:  October 28,1998 - Rob Frost, George Hurley
FA: George Hurley and Peg Immel (with five points of aid and 5.10+ free) - Oct. 18, 1998
