I believe this is the "Foundation Wall" ...

Description 

Second from the left on the most featured wall in the Sanctuary. This wall is the most set forward and is to your right from the approach trail. One of the best 5.12s in Lander, according to the first ascesionist.

The crux comes between bolt two and three, several options all involving laybacking and high feet. The rest of the climb is sustained 5.11 and 5.12 moves with okay rests. Cool holds and movement. Just wish it were longer.

Protection 

8 bolts
