Looking up at sport mining and apen arete on the L...

Description 

I usually lead this with just the bolts but you can place a tcu or small cam to lessen the run outs (Run outs are not bad). I love this climb a classic for the area, Climb it every time I'm up there.

Location 

ten feet to the right of Decision Time and 10 feet to the left of aspen arete, on the Long Wall.

Protection 

7 bolts optional tcu or small cam. 2 bolt/chains and anchor wrap route.

Good climbing on this one but unfortunately the rock is pretty dirty. I placed one small finger sized cam towards the top and was glad I had it.
