Description 

Try not to hurt yourself in the kneebar that unlocks the start. Attention to body positioning will keep you from getting beat up too badly and allow you to stand up into the cool sidepull underclings. Careful footwork will keep the bruising down as you pull through the second crux to more amazing sidepulls. A couple more moves and it's an easy cruise to the anchors.

Location 

This is on the Northwest face, left of Bed And Breakfast.

Protection 

Seven bolts to chain anchors.

I found the kneebar, but my partner did the first crux move without using it, and he climbed it better than I did. This is a good route, but the slab above has some small holds to negotiate.

Tons of lichen on the feet (at least the ones I used) made the upper crux more interesting. Low roof pull is easier than it looks.
