Blow Out, heel hook


Steep face just right of right facing corner. Gear is useful above bolt. There used to be 2 bolts, but now there is only 1.


Crash Pad recommended for start.

If the first bolt is missing then it is basically a boulder problem till you get to the 2nd bolt. That 1st bolt protected the crux moves.
