Description 

This is an easier friction climb that goes up the left side of a huge rock (sorta clam shell like) that leans against the Fall Wall. Jump across from a boulder and cruise to the top.


Location 

To set a top rope, scramble from the right to the start of E.O. Friction and E.O. Lieback. Move to the left side of the huge, leaning rock, drop a rope (60m was plenty), and rap to the start.


Protection 

None.

Per Mark Roth: 2 bolts and an anchor, now.
