BETA PHOTO: Up the slot.


This climb is easy to locate - a deep, narrow slot near the right end of the wall. Easy chimneying leads to an unpleasant exit sequence.


one bolt and one or two large pieces (2" - 4")

I started to lead this and ended up downclimbing because I couldn't find much solid pro, just a crap nut placement and a spot where my smallest cam only found two lobes worth of purchase. If you own a big bro you could certainly use it here. None of us were ever able to find the bolt on the left -- does it no longer exist? All we saw were the bolts for Minuet. Later three of us top-roped the climb, and even so I ended up failing the nasty exit at the top. Couldn't manage to lock in a chicken wing or any other technique that worked.
