Description 

This is worth toproping after climbing the left side route, or probably a pretty bold lead. It starts a short ways left of Pine Line. Follow a crack up to a roof and then make a difficult traverse left. On TR it's also possible to make a more direct start by climbing face (10d) up and left to a thin crack which joins the regular line.

A ways up the crack system is interrupted by a bulge. The 11b crux is pulling over that and then stepping right into another crack system. Easier climbing leads up the right side of the terrace.

Rappel from the bolted anchor (good bolts). One 70m easily makes it. A 60m might work too but will be close.

Protection 

Pro to 2", mostly small stuff.
