Description 

A short but challenging route that is worth a go on a crowded day, as this isn't the most popular 5.10 at Bonsai but its still a good time..

Climb the blunt arete bear hugging your way through the business of the climb and on to a short but interesting slabby section before clipping the chains.

This one can be wet when things are seeping.

Location 

All the way to the right at bonsai. The blunt arete.

Protection 

3 bolts to anchors.

Unlike most Bonsai 5.10s, there ain't no jugs on this one! Worth doing because the moves are non-standard. I found the middle bit to be a bit of a flail-a-thon.
