Great sport climb on the outer face of the column that forms Seven Virgins and a Mule. I can't recall how many bolts it is, but nice sustained climbing with frequent rests on good holds gets you up to a big incut ledge.
Generally well bolted, at this point you'll be about 7-8 feet above your last bolt, with another just around the corner... but you've got a slightly hair raising stance to clip from! You'll need a steel pulse to get through it...
After that it's a quick romp to the chains.


On the outer face of the column whose inner face is part of the Seven Virgins and a Mule chimney.


Bolts, can't recall how many but you can see them all from the ground.

Spaced bolts make this an exciting route.

7 bolts to the anchor. Great moves up to the 6th

Much more space between bolts then on many other Vantage sport climbs. About 12' between 5th and 6th bolt. There is a bolt hole, but no bolt. It's been that way for as long as I've been on the route, wonder if the FA decided to not place it there after drilling?
