Description 

Bouldery moves at the start (being tall helps) gain larger holds at the second bolt and fun edges lead to the top.

Bolted on lead, which resulted in a grounder placing the second bolt when a hook popped - ouch!

Location 

This short, south-facing climb is located on the face directly across from Tombstone Shadow.

Protection 

3 bolts, chain anchors

Fun, bouldery crux makes this worth a go when in the pit!

Very bad feet on the start of this climb. Layback flake with no feet makes it hard to stay on. Crux 1st to 2nd bolt. I'd raise this route to a 11a/b for sure. Rest of climb eases up. Being tall helps on this one.
