This is the first route you see when you reach the wall. It is a nice little trad line that will eat up gear from start to finish. Great warmup or route for the budding trad leader.
Start just below a left facing corner capped by a roof. Make the difficult start to reach the corner. Trend up and left on the slab until the corner goes vertical. Make the short move up then traverse hard left to the anchors on Swashbuckler or continue to the top and walk-off.
Single rack, tri-cams can help, and long runners to keep it clean. Two bolts with rap rings to get down. 60m is all you need.

This climb offers an abundance of gear options, especially while traversing under the roof. Make sure to extend your gear near the top if you want to make the last move onto the top block, I didn't and ended up have to cut about a meter off my rope on the lead end.
