At the wide diagonal crack, stand up on a soapbox stone and clip the first bolt. Pinch tufas and pull small pockets to get your feet up below the overhang. Use a spotter! An unexpected fall here could be disastrous. Reach up to big jugs and traverse left, make the next clip, and move up through more big holds and along a diagonal rail. All clips are close together. One thread... for limestone's sake. The feet disappear around the fourth bolt, when you traverse right on a bulge. Big flake on your right, pocket for your left, big move up to sharp jug. Keep it together, figure out where the jugs are, and clip the anchors. Tick the area classic!


Far right side of main wall. Just left of wide diagonal crack.


Five bolts, one thread.
Two-bolt anchor. Keychain rap rings.
