Description 

On the rock left of Summit rock proper, and the only route facing away from it. The crux is the mantle move near the bottom, then the face above the ledge is rather simple and enjoyable.The route is rather contrived in that every move could be avoided by climbing left of the bolts, but then that wouldn't be any fun!


Protection 

4? bolts to a 2 bolt anchor.

I would say this is probably an "s" rating, as the crux is a few feet above the first bolt, and the potential for groudfall if you screw up is high. Finding anything to put your hands on is VERY height dependant in the crux, and there's not too much there if you're short (like me).
