Susan at the anchors on Real Men of Genius (5.10a)...

Description 

A short, kinda grainy left-facing corner leads to a ledge below a smooth green face. Clip a high bolt and make a fingery traverse left with technical footwork to a good edge and a break below a small roof. Undercling out right and weave your way along the upper face on sloping ledges.

Enjoyable moves on this varied and technical outing.

Location 

Just right of Slacker and 25' left of Nowhere To Go But Down is this climb up a smooth face with a greenish tinge.

Protection 

6 bolts, chain anchors

Good hands and "marginal feet" - that sums it up. If you can read the rock (unlike I did) you'll float this lower section.
