Shares the first two bolts with Ready to Strike then goes right.
11 bolts to chain anchors. An optional cam could be placed between the 2nd and 3rd bolt.

Just Basking 5.11d ** 80' F (11b)
Listed in the guidebook as a variation of Ready To Strike. Climbs a direct line on the right wall of the corner, stepping on to the right wall after the first 2 bolts in the 5.9 corner of Ready to Strike. Follow the bolts through the progressively harder moves to the technical 11d finish - which is what we did on the first ascent (its substantially easier if you use the right arete - thus the 11b grade in the guidebook I guess). Chain anchors on top make for a fun top rope climb (25m). FA 10/16/96
Lots of bolts, good rock, consistent, interesting moves.

Cleaned this route on TR- thought the direct finish that avoids stepping right onto the arete was .12a/b- very hard and desperate on really bad holds. Safe, though. Probably would feel easier if its colder.
That said, the obvious route steps right up high and finishes up the arete to avoid the 4 move v4 boulder problem finish. Good fun regardlesss.
