Description 

Just right of Mosquito is a boulder that once surmounted leads to this very fun face.


Protection 

A couple of medium cams (1/2 to 1 inch) and long slings are necessary, but it's mostly bolted.

Old school spacing without being terrifying. Very reasonable and quite fun. Don't miss the nut placement between the first two bolts and risk groundfall like I did.

Surprisingly fun! Neat movement that feels quite secure. Gear appears where you need it even though it doesn't look like it. Well worth doing.
