Description 

The crux will hit you after the second bolt - the gap before the arete can be backed up with a Alien or cam but beware of your rope getting sucked up into the seam above... its sharp and I would not want to take a whipper sawing into that.
Higher up there are some solid slab moves ... be prepared for the 7+ move.

Location 

Past first obvious slab, in a culvert

Protection 

Bolts and a cam to protect the arete move to bolt
