Follows a prominent black streak in the center of the cliff.
Run-out past two bolts to a groove.


Safest to top rope.

I couldn't find anything 10c about this climb. Definitely sketchy, but build a fat anchor with like 5 pieces in the horizontal, and you're golden. The run out part was like 5.9.

Climb is the obvious shallow chute/gully in the middle of the wall.
Reid/Falkenstein guides lists this as 10a, then shows a 10c crux on the topo. It is clearly not 10c - the 10a rating seems appropriate.
