Start in a dihedral about 50 ft. right of Ya-Ta-Hei and 50 ft. left of Bucket Slave. Pull up on the finger crack and stem the sustained and technical dihedral past two bolts to a stance. Move past two more bolts through a bulge to the anchor. Pumpy, fun and aesthetic climbing.
4 bolts + anchor

This climb is great. The start was hard (because my sausage link fingers). Quite sequential. I didn't find the friction to be great but doable. After I lead it, a friend sent it, but she had the benefit of small fingers. If only..... Get on it though. It's quite short.
