Description 

Fun moderate route, but no joke getting to the first pro - a little bit crumbly, and on the R/X side of R since the bolt is about 40-50 feet above a flat granite ledge.

The route wanders above - good route-finding skills are needed to find the easiest way.


Location 

Right of Terrorist, start up the right edge of the roof at a crumbly little bulge/flake - then head up and left to the bolt which is further up than you would like. A small white streak can help find the bolt (caused by rust from the old bolt killing the lichen). Then head up and right and wander your way up the wall. Also has a substantial runout on pitch 2 (getting to the obvious small roof).


Protection 

1 bolt, pro to 3", extra 1-2" pro. I replaced the bolt in 2001.
