Description 

slab line to the right of prominent Open Face gully. Couple bolts throughout where pro placements are non existent. Allegedly led not using bolts by unknown party in 1980s according to P.Nick's guide.

Location 

slab line to the right of prominent Open Face gully

Protection 

Quickdraws for 10 bolts on the face. Newer anchors at the top, under the small ceiling, have rap chains.

The older, higher, bolted anchors, 12 feet from the ledge, are still there and in good shape.
