Description 

Easy face climb that can be done as one or two pitches (60m rope required for one 185' pitch). Climb face right of bottom belay. 2 bolts at the beginning, horizontal crack part way up for a cam or nut, then 3 more bolts. A bit run out but climbing is pretty easy (you can place pro over in the gully to the left if you wish). There is a ledge 2/3 up with a crack where you can break it into two pitches. Good belay ledge at the top with nice crack for setting up an anchor, or you may be able utilize nearby bushes. Walk off towards the east (rock left).

Location 

Right of One for the Road on the far east portion of the Sven slab area.

Protection 

5 bolts, small to #1 C4, stoppers. Use 24" alpine draws if you plan to climb it as one long pitch.
