Description 

This has decent moves.

Location 

It is left of "Jim's Myrtle Spurge."

Protection 

No anchors (eds. old buttonheads without hangers, which can be backed up), it is pretty difficult to set up and direct your rope where it should be. This is not the easiest to TR!

There are no anchors on this, some loose stuff here and there, becomes uneventful about two thirds up.

Well, there are anchors, they're just kinda special anchors. Bring your keyhole hangers for some buttonheads.

That's true. There are three "Buttonheads" on top back a little ways that we used "Keyhole" (Moses) hangers on. If you don't have "Keyhole" hangers or "Wires", you could rig it with nuts.

Isn't the most secure rig to TR from. LOL! But it works.

I backed up the three buttonheads with a #3 Camalot and a small nut. It is not the best route, but if you do it, you can say you did the furthest route north at the main cliff. I climbed a bit left of the 1st posted picture showing the line. This line looks like it could be led with small gear but would deserve a "S" rating.
