Description 

The slabby, short face at the far right end of the main wall. The first ten feet are steep and then the angle backs off for the remaining 20 feet. Mostly soloed for years but after comments from folks in the FA party about it possibly getting bolted to add another beginner sport lead to an area that's known for its beginner sport routes, bolts were added in summer 2008.


Location 

The slabby, short face at the far right end of the main wall. Listed as route #12 on the Gallows Edge Main Wall photo topo.


Protection 

Three bolts to a two-bolt anchor with clips.
