Silly Millimeter (5.10b), Holcomb Valley Pinnacles

Description 

Just right of The Longest Yard is this vertical face to slab with interesting and varied moves.

Vertical face with edges gain a shallow left-facing corner which is liebacked to a right-facing flake which gains easier ground. Head slightly left on slab past one more bolt to finish.

A little dirty but more traffic should help to clean this up.

Protection 

4 bolts, chain anchor

From the ground this looks like just another route. Nothing too special except it follows an obvious dark water streak. Looks can be deceiving, as midway in a somewhat low angle bowl is some trickery. Our party of 3 climbed it 3 different ways.
