  • Description 

    Climb up the heavily textured rock to reach the mail slots. Reach out right to clip the second bolt. From here, head up and right doing some cool moves to gain the top of the overhanging flake. Clip the 3rd bolt and head up on to the slab and clip the 4th bolt. Find a way to get through this very thin section to reach the shuts (crux).

    Location 

    From the approach trail, head right. Just after passing a 5.8 and 2 10's that start from a high ledge, you'll come to an obvious overhanging corner with 2 huge mail slots about 15 feet up.

    Protection 

    4 bolts, shuts.
