Description 

Likely the easiest of the bolted routes on the Platypus, but the crux is not trivial, particularly if you don't know where the good holds are.

Climb 3 bolts off 5.7 jugs on steep, slightly mossy rock. The tricky crux moves guard the anchor, but are very well protected by the third bolt, so go for it! It may be easiest to mantle and top out and then clip the anchor.

Location 

The only bolted route on the South Face (see Platypus area description).

Protection 

3 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor. Rap rings recently added to this route. (7/19/16 is when I saw them)

The first bolt is a little sketch, but the only difficult climbing (for the rating) comes just above the 3rd bolt
