The crux is off the deck on thin crimps up an overhang to some nice rounded pockets on a vertical face/arete section to a sweet exit. If you step over left at the bottom (crux), the route probably goes at 5.10b.


This is the first bolted line to the right of Overlard.


4 bolts and 2 fixed slings to a 2 bolt chained anchor.

Someone has removed and not replaced the fixed slings, so be careful because it is now an R rated lead.

Just looking through my notes: The bolts for this were placed on lead...I'd returned to NM after doing the California trad thing....(no flipping idea about the tie offs, though). Cam

Tried this one for the first time today. I remember seeing fixed slings - or rather a fixed sling - at one point, but they were gone today. Didn't feel all that uncomfortable though - the second bolt is a bit high and if you were to peel while clipping you'd deck. Other than that, it's 4 moderately spaced bolts, which means bigger air if you catch it, but the falls are clean.

The 2 slings are currently fixed on this climb (5/09); with these in place, it's very well-protected.
Update 2/2014: These slings are a bit ratty; and the lower one appears partially torn and I personally wouldn't want to fully trust it as ground fall is a possibility if it were to fail. Maybe they're ok, but it is probably best if they're replaced. As Jason mentions above, a climber relatively solid at the grade might feel okay with the situation.
