Approach a now missing bolt from good holds on the right. Traverse left onto a blank face, away from any good holds on the right. Head for the next bolt hole, then towards the tp. Small cams and nuts useful above the former last bolt.


Bolts may have been replaced, but top rope anchors exist.

The lower bolt is there but the 2nd has been removed and filled. There is a high, old 1/4 bolt just above a flake but I wouldn't recommend it's use haha! The flakes are good for pro or just TR it, easy TR set-up on the upper ledge in some vertical cracks.

This route is a sandbag at 10a. The 2 bolts are needed through the crux section or it essentially a solo. A gear anchor can be rigged at the point where this climb ends before the walkoff ledge. It's easy to rig after leading the climb and then you can clean it from around the corner and solo easily back up to the ledge. Be careful. Setting up topropes on this face is kind of an ordeal.
