Diagonal up and right. The first bolt comes and goes. Not sure why. A .5 tcu fixes that problem, or just boulder up to the next bolt. Steep climbing heads up through overlaps and cracks to a two-bolt anchor. 60m rope gets you up and down.


Uphill from Feast of Friend, shares the start of Brass Buster


Bolts, one or two .5" cams optional
