BETA PHOTO: Yellow is the 10b route, red is the 11a/b varation...

Description 

verticle crimping up face. If you go left on the arete at the top bolt, it's 10b. If you stay on the face and go directly to the anchors it's 11a.

Location 

Farthest route to the right on mini buttress. This toilet earth is just to the right.

Protection 

5 bolts plus draws for anchors.

There's definitely more than 5 bolts on this climb (maybe 8 or 9?), which makes it feel over bolted even for Big Chief. Really fun though.

Nothing difficult about this climb, just continuous 10a climbing up a fun face. Recommend the 11a variation (pictured going right) as it's great crimps with a safe fall.
