Just great fun and fine rock! P1. 80, 5.11- Start up a short right facing corner to a stance just below the first bolt. A tricky step off the stance gains an undercling to layback crack up to another stance. From this stance follow bolts past a small overlap up a low angle but extremely thin face/slab ending in a big solution pocket at chains.I found a small mono pocket on the upper face, memorable!
