Description 

This climb is OK and worth doing if you are waiting to get on another line. It follows jugs and crips to a small roof where the anchors are.

Location 

This is last sport line before B3. It starts left of a large detached block.

Protection 

The bolts are not to far apart but they can be hard to reach from the jugs.

A good line with some sporty clips. Use the big block if you need some help on the first clip. There is a big jug just above the anchors which makes for a better clip rather than clipping from below and right (like I did), which is ackward. Big reaches and sporty moves make it worthwhile.
