Description 

Who would expect to find a wild overhanging sport route in this area?

Scramble to the top of a block to clip the first bolt under the overhang. From here, big juggy moves take you up and left (some heel hooking chops might come in handy here). You find yourself under a massive hueco into which you can crawl for a rest before popping back out onto the overhanging wall, and up over the lip.

Location 

Left of Z-Crack, around the corner and a bit uphill.

Protection 

3 bolts provide good protection. An alternate start could be protected with some trad gear.
