Holy Mackerel, it's a nice line!

Description 

The crux is near the top where the holds get thinner and it gets steeper.

Location 

This is the leftmost route. It uses the same start as for N.B.T., but veer left, up the middle of the column....

Protection 

Small gear! No bolts, no anchors. Sneak right to the sport rings.

Per derek peavey: with the permission of the F.A. (Mike C.), the route now has 6 bolts and an anchor.

With the permission of the F.A. (Mike C.), the route now has 6 bolts and an anchor. This route provides a better warmup to the cliff and is also a great 5.10 for those who aren't trying the hard stuff.
