|In critical habitat area for the Desert Tortoise|
Ascend an ever-steepening face with many edges and pockets of various sizes. A very slightly overhanging bulge appears; the feet get smaller and the holds trickier. Good footwork and balance will see you through this short (2 bolt) crux.
After the bulge the angle eases slightly and the holds get huge, making for easy cruising to the chains.
An unexpected bonus is the appearance of a fossil impression of a bivalve shell on the top side of a chert knob a few inches above and a foot or so to the right of the last bolt.
The line starts to the left of large, light-colored triangle about ten feet up. The guidebook shows a project that starts to the right of the triangular feature and which shares chains with Eve's Testicle; however I didn't see any bolts for the project (at least down low).
13 bolts to single-ring anchors.
