This is a very nice wall with a terrific layback, which can be led. There is a fair bit of loose rock above this face. There is a large ring anchor 10 feet back from the edge of the face on right side. There is a large ring anchor 15 feet back from the edge on the left side. There is a bolt near the top of Layback. To its right is the M Face.

Does any one know if graffiti has seen a complete finish without using the two bolted hand holds?
