A fun climb with 2 cruxes. Boulder up to a ledge (crux 1), the up the dihedral to an awkward exit (crux 2) and the anchors.
The next bolt line right of Shady Lady and first bolt line on the south-facing face in this alcove, just right of a dihedral.
7 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

Sort of a split personality. Bouldery start with a surprisingly difficult move for the grade (detoured by many). The namesake layback/dihedral can be tricky in spots.

IMO the corner protects better with stoppers than bolts -- more gear, easier to place and clip, less chance of falling while tangled in the rope.

Agree with both comments above. Could have been a trad climb if Horst was younger and less bolt happy! Don't let the odd bolting or potential for some greatgear deter you. This is a great line. The extension is (acording to my partners, I pumped out) easier than the bottom. Bouldery initial crux @ bolt 2 (it's fun) that was mis-bolted (easiest line is left of bolts 1 & 2 and is more direct to the entire route. Appears to be bolted prior to being climbed, or bolted to try and up the grade... kinda lame either way. you can eat a sandwich sitting on the ledge while you depump if you plan to climb the extension.
