Description 

Just left of the Standard Route is a beautiful,clean almost vertical slab. Follow the line of bolts up the smooth slab to a small roof. Make a tricky move past the roof and reach the belay. The crux is getting to the fouth bolt. Great route with good steep and dicey slab climbing. Almost three stars.

Protection 

Nine bolts will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

Per Lisa Montgomery: two bolts were added to make this a more reasonable lead.

We now have bolts...again? This thing has been messed with. 3.5 star slab route! It's a little spicy (sorry?) and better with the draws hung.

Two bolts were added to make this a more reasonable lead. Easy to set a toprope/hang draws after doing Wear Cattle.
