Directions:  Start at the lowest toe of rock on the Main Slab, just right of Erosion Groove.
Description: An interesting slab route with some fun moves. Originally done with no bolts by Bayard & Greg, it was accidentally bolted by a subsequent party thinking it hadn't been climbed before.
    Pitch 1: Climb up and right past two small overlaps (gear) to a bolt. Continue straight up past a small flake on the left (gear), to another bolt, then up to the anchor for Groov'In.

Gear: standard rack
Descent: Rappel with one 60m trending right to reach the ground.
History:  September 20,2004 - Bayard Russell, Greg Leach
