The "Hanging Chad" near the top.


As you hike in, you pass an obvious steep line of bolts (maybe Primal Instinct?). Then the ledge narrows and slants down to the slabby area of the rock. The first route there is a very thin crack with a single bolt. We TR'ed this off the anchor on Route 3 - definitely the hardest of the slab routes.


Small to medium wires / cams.

Led this last summer. It's called Primal Instinct in Gunni Rock and goes at 10d. I'd say it's closer to 10a. Fun, slabby, finger crack to an easy finish, it takes TCUs well. The steep bolt line in the description is Random Wasteland 5.11+.
