This is a nice change to the usual X Rock affair, a long face climb that makes you think on solid rock. The crux is at the ancient bolt.
This is the face between thin crack and wide crack. There is an ancient bolt about halfway up the climb.
Although potentially leadable, probably better done as just a top rope off of the two bolt anchor and chains at the top.

While leading, the crux isn't the scary part. The scary part is the last sandy slab climbing before the anchor. The bolt is way below, the gear above the bolt is shit, and it is very sandy (possible deck fall). I had a moment of weakness here and downclimbed to some crappy micronuts to lower off. They popped of course, and I went for a long ride nearly to the ground. But the bolt is solid! (If leading, you might as well solo this one.)
