Clip a low first bolt, crank over a short overhang (harder for shorties), then work your way right and up past one more bolt (crux) on some of the greasiest, most slippery smears found in the campground. Easier terrain and and a few pieces of gear lead to an awkward, scrunchy, low angle chimney and the bolted belay. Rap from here or use long slings and link it up with the fun roof of Geronimo above.
Not particulary memorable except for the section of seemingly frictionless smears. 0.5 stars out of 5.
Just right of Spider Line, and directly below Geronimo roof.
2 bolts (3/8's), light rack of mostly small pieces, 2 bolt rap anchor. A few larger cams and long slings if linking into Geronimo 5.7.

This was the first climb I ever led. A very poor choice! I had to aid past the crux bolt.
