Start a few feet right of Whip-Stocking. Take advantage of a nice hand-jam down low before gaining a big ledge. Find the hidden hold along the way to make life easier and then pull some thin plates to the chains. Finish in a hueco.

Bring a brush and help her along. Great climb from bottom to top.

The beginning feels harder than 10b if you do it wrong. I was apprehensive about rock breaking since it is so new, but it is solid and pretty clean. Good warm up and pretty straightforward after the low crux. Easier than the other 10b at Drive By.

I really liked it, should clean up a bit and be great! Nice to have an easier warm up over here.

Some of the plates towards the top are shaarp, a nice handjam will get you through the bottom part easily.

Good rock quality, pretty clean already. A good addition as a warmup to take some traffic off Make a Wish. In the future please leave two quicklinks on each anchor, especially at an established crag that's going to get a lot of traffic. One of the bolts in the middle is becoming a spinner already.

Nice! I wasn't expecting much from a late addition to the crag. but ended up enjoying it a lot. I climbed it as a first route of the day, and 10b seemed about right. But then I got on Whipstocking and thought it was easier than this 10b, so... who knows.
