The second bolted line to the right of the tunnel, identifiable by the fixed pin at the start. Follows a discontinuous line of flakes up a steep face. The crux comes about halfway up at a slabby reach move before getting into a juggy flake that leads to easier climbing above. Sustained, fun, thought provoking climbing. It is exposed and dries quickly, and is climbable in low temps.
Bomber new bolts and one fixed pin. Chains at the top.

The second bolt (third fixed piece, including the pin) is bad. THe stud spins in the hole! Anybody feel like doing a public service?
I think the thing must've been over-torqued when it was placed, because it is a new bolt. Bummer.

The route also has a 20-25 foot extension that is fun climbing, however the rock is less than perfect, in fact a bit rotten in places. It climbs the obvious prow (in a contrived way) standing above the first anchors, probably around .10a

Though the above-mentioned bolt needs to be replaced, you can place a yellow metolius in the flake to its left. Don't fall too hard, though. It would suck to have that flake blow.

It also might be worth noting that if you blow the second clip, you would come damn near close to hitting the deck, if not hitting it. However, the moves to the second clip, though a little thought provoking, are not hard. A great route with a killer crux sequence.

i think this line was originally climbed with maybe just one bolt.
it climbs much better as a trad line, and really should be free of all bolts.

A tcu or alien can protect the moves below the fixed pin, but be aware that the block you are placing it behind is less than solid. If you take up a #.4 Camelot, you can get a bomber piece in a slot around to the right once you move above the pin (before the first bolt).
If you are short, taking the "ramp" variation from the bolt below the crux is worth considering: Step left to gain a small shelf for your hands, smear the feet, then reach straight up to for a small horizontal slot rather than going for the reachy hold straight up the shallow corner to the right of the bolt.
A tiny tcu can be placed in the horizontal seam below the crux bolt (under the arch) if you aren't sure you can reach the bolt without some effort. It's touch of a stretch for me --I'm 5' 1"-- but it shouldn't be a problem for most folks.
