Take a #4 (or #5?) or be prepared for a decent run out to the anchor bolts. Although the terrain is pretty easy, I wouldn't want to take a big fall in a corner that tight.
Sustained 5.8 from the word go, with fun stemming and jamming and great pro. One of the best cracks at the grade in White Rock, IMO.

|And if you're not comfortable with that bit of runout, another option many folks take is move left and clip the anchors for Way Beyond Zebra. It'll make cleaning the gear on your way back down a little more difficult though.|

Found some slings at the anchors on the climb last thursday (June 24th). We meant to leave them there but not everyone knew this so they ended up in one of our bags anyway. If you know who left them there send me an email and I'll get them back to you.
