Description 

Begin 5' left of Double Cross. Climb up to an overlap and drop in a couple cams (suggest you equalize them as it's a bit crunchy...but good). Mantle and move left to the first bolt. Move up & left. You get some more pro before another mantle, then a bolt. Move right into the dish and clip another bolt that protects the steep, pawing, slabby crux. Once above the crux, follow the left trending crack to the top of dogleg. There is a moderately sized, detached, slabby piece of rock above the crux. It hasn't come off and I doubt it will...but let your belayer beware.


Protection 

3 bolts. I believe a 2 and 3 camalot for the beginning overlap. 1" and under sized pieces for the remainder of the route and a lot of runners.

An OK route, but hardly stellar. 2 of 5 stars.
