Description 

The start is a strenuous, tricky mantle. There is no protection, but with some effort you can place some gear at ground level and rig a long leash to keep your belayer from falling over backwards if you fall when he/she spots you. Above the start, a seriously runout 5.10A face takes you to the end of the first pitch. There is a second pitch (5.10A).

Location 

On the rounded prow to the left of Mike's Books.

Protection 

Light rack and two bolts.

There seems to a new bolt protecting the mantle, making it a three bolt route.
