Description 

This is a Quarries classic with a nice variety of techniques, including crack climbing (finger locks), crimpy face climbing, laybacking, and a nice big move to finish. Like its 5.12 neighbor to the right, it has two ledges that offer great rests between the hard sections. The middle section may be the crux, though this probably depends on your height and particular climbing style. Give it a go!

Location 

The left-facing corner about 30 feet right of the 3-bolt route Sloping Staircase is the start. Once you reach the ledge, traverse up and left to another ledge, then finish up and right.

Protection 

Not very leadable (PG13/R), though I'm sure someone could do it.

There are two large iron bars sticking up on an intermediate ledge between the main ledge and the highest ledge on top. A girth hitch on each bar with some equalization should give you a pretty good anchor.

The start is really hard without a good reach.
