Description 

This route needs some cleaning. I found it to be dirty and crumbly; as such it is not so hot. From the chain belay on Fred Rasmussen, climb a few more meters of crack, pass a good horizontal to reach a bolt, pass a crux, clip another bolt, then head left to and around a corner onto big puzzle-pieces on a low angle face. Continue to a set of chain anchors.


Location 

This climb starts directly above the finish of Fred Rasmussen. Start with that climb, clip the chains with a draw and keep on going...


Protection 

two bolts protect the difficult climbing. A #3 camalot goes in a horizontal before the first bolt if so desired (maybe 5.8 territory?) and the top might take some gear as if you'd really need it (easy climbing). THere is a 2-bolt/chain anchor up top to rap from all the way to the ledge at the base of Fred Rasmussen with a 70M rope. A 60M should also work, but I didn't check.

This seemed plenty clean to me and very fun. Just continue straight up from Fred Rasmussen anchors and continue up the face passing bolts. Above the last bolt it is a ways to the chains without gear, but easy climbing. The harder climbing is very well protected.
