Description 

Start a few feet left of the big flake. Boulder up to the ledge, then make thin, sequential moves past a hairline S-crack. Finish on some jugs.


Protection 

4-5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor on top of the rim.

In Hanson's guidebook, this is listed as a top rope, but it has since been bolted.

One of the bolts at the anchor is missing its nut and hanger.

We had a hard time staying on route with this one. It felt harder than 5.10b if you stayed under the bolts.
