Description 

From the right side of the rock, climb left onto the rock, and turn a bulge on its left. Angle slightly right past bolts up a nice slab with interesting moves, including underclinging and liebacking a thin flake. B6 seems unnecessarily close to B5. A bomber placement for a purple Camalot is obvious in a horizontal two feet below B7. B7 is placed such that the gate of the carabiner clipped into the hanger is levered over the lip of the bulge, compromising the biner's strength. Maybe a tiny biner could be safer to clip there. Another placement for a purple Camalot exists above B7.


Location 

This is the rightmost bolted route.


Protection 

Seven bolts. I would take a purple Camalot (or two) to back up the seventh bolt. Bolted anchors.
