Description 

This is a good climb that involves a few face moves at the bottom and then gets easier near the top. Be aware of a possibility of a slight swing if sharing the anchors with the route to the right.

Protection 

This route climbs the friction face just left of Dihedral route (5.7) Easily toproped by sharing the same bolt anchors, which seem to be on the only fixed anchors on the ridge at the present time.

CONDITION REPORT 
Only one bolt on top of this route currently. The second is missing the nut/hanger, and there is a third blank hole. Hopefully replacement is planned for these.

A new bolt was added, and Loctite was applied to the nuts on July 7th, 2016. Thanks to everyone who reported the issue to the NC3.

This now has 2 quality bolts at the top. The crack at the top is easier than the 5.8 at the bottom but is just as fun.

Looks like red Loctite. I would suggest blue Loctite for future projects. It is much easier to break the bond if you need to do replacement. Red Loctite can sometimes become permanent.
