Description 

Railing is located in the main cave. It is the farthest right bolt line out of the cave starting just right of Terminal. The start is identified by the ".12b" drawn in chalk on the wall. There is an alternate start to the right that avoids the crux and is .11+. The crux comes in the first 15 feet followed by fun moves on steep rock to the lip of the cave and the anchors. Feeling trepiditious?.... Bring a stick clip. Actually, there is a nice solid stick in the cave for just that purpose. It has good rock, great moves, good pro, but the pitch is just so short. Two stars.

Addendum: it is route #7 in the photo.


Protection 

5 bolts + 2 bolt anchor.

Sorry, it's route number 7. -CD

This route is actually 11d with the 12b version as the alternate start, since the 11d is straight up and the 12b comes in hard from the left.
