Description 

Low angle slab climbing that gives opens a few other routes. Rappel may go through dirt patches.
P1: Easy slab. Opens access to Blue Sky.
P2: No bolts to the anchor, so run it out. Opens access to Buffalo Brothers. As other comments suggest, this is more of a rap anchor than belay anchor. Recommend linking P1 and P2.
P3: Opens access to last pitch of Cause for Pause.
P4: I'll let you know after the next time I go.


Location 

Starts a few feet right of Bright Eyes.


Protection 

Minimal sport rack.

Like the description says, a dirty, low-angle ramp that opens access to the nicer climbs above. Not worth doing, otherwise. If you're a new leader and searching for something easy, the bolt spacing (or complete lack thereof) could be intimidating.

Easy. Im considering this as my first multi-free-solo. It has huge hands and feet its pretty low angle and considering the bolts are pretty far apart anyway, why not? (Not recommending anyone do this so don't go out thinking, "oh hey he said it's simple and to free-solo!" ... No. )

On another note, i added a pretty interesting 5.6 trad traverse at the top that led me to the top anchor of Leonids. That made the climb more worth while. Single rack. .4-3 if i remember right. The protections there, just feel around. Slippery feet is all that makes it difficult. An amazing rappel down the right side of triton awaits if you bring along a 70m rope. Have fun!
