Description 

Climb the slick face just right of Neptune. You can clip the first bolt of Neptune, but it will likely give you a bit of drag towards the top. The climbing is easy to the first bolt proper anyways. Pull through a few bulges on pockets, crimps, and a few jugs.


Location 

Start 10' right of Netpune.


Protection 

7-8 bolts plus 2 bolt cold shut anchor on the ledge. All safe falls, but cruxy moves a bit above the 3rd or 4th bolt, with potential for a nice fun whipper.

Great climbing, but this route would be better if it had an extra bolt to protect the finish. If any of that choss at the top breaks off while you're topping out, be prepared for an unnecessarily big ride and hope you don't smack the wall behind you on the way.
