Description 

The right-most route on the Site 18 wall. Start with easy moves to reach the first bolt, then climb on small holds to gain a large horizontal crack/ledge. The next couple moves above the ledge constitute the crux of the climb, then it's off to the chains with plenty of good holds to work with. Lower with a 60m rope.


Protection 

Bolts to chain anchors.

I agree with the one-move-wonder comment but it is a very fun climb. The crux move is committing but very fun and has bomber holds above - you just have to trust yourself and go for it. After that move it is no more than 5.7 but fun up to the chains. My favorite route in the area.
