Description 

Start on the far right side of the slab.... Climb up the bolted first step just left of the large juniper tree. Continue up the thinly protected, right-leaning seam up to the bolted crux....

Do a full wingspan bear hug on a small hold out far right before climbing past the crux bolt!

Slap with the left and rreeeaachh with the right.... Great moves!!

Protection 

Very thin and tricky gear.... 2-bolt anchor with chains.
