|Easy Bake Alcove
Wear your optimistic-colored clothing for this one. For me that's orange. Follow a line of three-finger pockets up to a nice flake by the second bolt. Climb hard moves well out left via the "piranha" hold to a big hole and the third clip.
Make a big span move to a sharp-edged hold out up and right, then punch it up to a nice dish and the fourth bolt. Engaging, lower-angle climbing goes up and then out right to the arÍte. Slap up the edge of the arÍte and face enjoying fine position to the anchors.
The holds through the crux by the third bolt look temporary, unfortunately. But a number of climbers have pulled really hard on them already so we're hopeful they stick around--it's a great line up a nice face.
The only line up the west-facing, streaked wall of the Easy Bake Alcove.
9 bolts to chains with biners.
