Description 

Crux is after a fairly high first bolt. Small crimpers make for a fairly difficult move on an almost vertical face.

Make sure to rap down. Rope drag just below the anchors would be appalling, as a sharp ledge of petina lies directly below the anchors.

Protection 

Draws--4-5 (save a long sling for the last one before the anchors). Nice set of anchors at top.

This face route is at the far right end of Jaimes Rock. It only has two bolts right on the face and no anchors on top. Up top there is a nice vertical crack for a few cams. You can use this same set up for Big Show and Stud Muffin if you top belay and or extend it out on the nice platform. Use draws for directionals on Bivvy Kitten if done this way.
