Description 

Climb up edges and pockets on arete past 5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
The crux is between the 4th and 5th bolt where there is a life saving knob/rock hold that is the coolest hold on the route. First to second bolt is run out.
Fun route.

This route can be top roped via a trail around the south east side trail.

Location 

As soon as you come to Mile Marker 49 pull off immediately and look to the north and you'll see the 35 foot cliff. That's your spot.
Hike up trail that starts between a tree and rock. Cross the fence and scrabble up the slope to the base of the cliff.

Protection 

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.
