Description 

What a dumb route and the recipient of our first-ever BOMB evaluation.

Start in the second dihedral from the right, looking for the nice ledges halfway up the route. It's a difficult one-move-wonder one move up. The rest of the route is cake. Dumb.

Protection 

A medium-sized cam or a large stopper is a nice addition here, but slings will work.

The move at the bottom is hard and is about a body length long. It does not look like good protection at the crux. I top roped the climb. The rest of the climb is much easier.
