No hard crux move like the left 5.11. Merely stout thin face climbing the whole way.


3 bolts. Setup a top rope off the two brackets on top (20 feet of webbing and 4 carabiners).


Facing the southern side of the pillar it is the bolt line on the left.

This is the bolt line on the right (not left). Would recommend a stick clip since the belay area's not wide or level. The first two bolts are in decent shape but the third is rusted out. Above the second bolt is well below the grade though, so if you can get to there you should be fine without the third bolt.
