Description 

This climb starts about ten feet left of 'Breakneck' and 30' right of 'Triple S'.
Follow flakes and edges to the obvious right facing corner. A #5 HB and a small wire are your only protection until you reach the corner where a #2 Camalot comes in way handy. Follow the corner up and past two bolts to the second right facing and slightly overhanging flake (TCU's).Move right to jugs and last bolt,make a long reach to a jug. Follow the corners to a two bolt anchor.

Location 

The obvious right facing corner and face ten feet left of Breakneck and 30' right of Triple S.

Protection 

Gold camalot is the biggest piece you'll need. Bring a standard Seneca rack including HB's.

The move around the second right facing corner seemed harder than 5.9+, because I couldn't get any traction with my feet! Got a .3 C4 in that corner and took some falls on that :) Fun climbing.

At the first right-facing corner, it separates at the bottom into a detached flake...which is loose. I suggest you don't pull hard on it.
