70 feet to the right of the giant Phase 3 off-width, and immediately to the right of a prominent arete (Ladder, 5.7).
A short, steep, and crimpy crux bookended by some fun, technical climbing. Beware of the spiders that live in the crack below the roof!
Climb up the right-facing corner below the roof clipping a couple of bolts. Gain a good horizontal with some large, shaky flakes stuck in it.
Clip another bolt and use a high step on a great, ball-like feature to your right and some razor edges for your fingers. Crank up and into a very shallow corner.
Clip a couple more bolts before gaining the positive horizontal relief. Place some gear and continue up the easier slab above, placing a couple more pieces of gear before reaching the shared chain anchors on a nice ledge.
Locate the roof protected with bolts 70 feet to the right of Phase 3 immediately to the right of a prominent arete.
4 bolts and a #.5 through #2 Camalot.
