Description 

Start 6' right of Midsummer Daydreams, right of a shallow corner. Climb up the vertical section then hit large (and I mean LARGE) pockets and hueco features on the 45-degree or so overhang. Climb up and slightly off to your left, follow the bolts and you should be fine.


Protection 

Bolts. Please do not toprope off of the fixed gear at the top, use your own draws for that. If the biners on the chains look worn or do not work properly, please replace them. It's good karma.

Great jug haul. A true test of forearm fortitude!

Loose block at first horizontal break between first and second bolt.
Beware belayers, if this blows it could be interesting if you are standing below

Happy sending!
