BETA PHOTO: marked the draws and anchors - really fun climb!

Description 

From left to right this would be route #3. This climb follows a cool rail feature that snakes up the slab. The first moves are the crux so a stick clip might be handy if 5.8 is a challenging grade for you.

Start out the lip of a small cave (crux) to the first bolt. Climb up and left on in-cut holds to the anchor. This used to share an anchor with Outer Bounds 5.8+ but now has a nice independent anchor to the right.

Location 

From left to right this is route #3.

Protection 

3 bolts to anchor...

The description is incorrect; this is the right-hand of the two pre-existing routes - the third bolt line from the left (there are new routes at the left end and right end).

Chris and I re-bolted this line, cleaned it up some, and added an independent anchor at the right side of the top bulge.

Good warm-up on cool quartz patina holds.

Thanks Ward and Chris!
yeah, I agree that some of the holds are cool and interesting. Gets one thinking. I did this as a warm-up 2(?) years ago. Quite an adventure given the amount of lichen. Got the blood and adrenaline pumping just a bit too much first thing in the morning :).
