Description 

To the right of the 5.8 corner is a seam/crack in the middle of the smooth face. Climb chunky rock to the base of this. Clip the bolt and crimp up to better holds and another bolt. Move up and left dropping in a piece or two and work your way to another bolt and a boulder problem crux. Old school open coldshuts await you at the top.


Protection 

Single set wires, cams.
