Description 

Awesome tall line up the tallest part of the face with the crux about 2/3 the way up, squeezing up a mini bulge. There is a committing and high stakes throw to the lip. Really fun climbing. Toprope rehearsed on the FA. A fall from the last committing throw has some bad possibilities.

Location 

On the Group Leader Boulder. Around to the right of Group Leader and Like a Boss. This line goes straight up the tallest part of the face with a large boulder underneath it.

Protection 

Pads. 3 Big ones. You will be protected okay for the bottom 2/3. A spotter may just get hurt, but you could spot the sides.
