Description 

Stick clip the first bolt to protect the easy opening section before making powerful moves to the second bolt and past it before it eases up at the third bolt. The climbing is overhung but has some nice incut edges. You can stop at the first anchor or continue on the nice gray slab to a second anchor.

Location 

This is on the left side of the Lower Wall. Go left from where the trail meets the cliff and shortly after it starts climbing uphill this route is located on the steep, grey limestone face. It is just left of the three innominate routes.

Protection 

3 bolts to the first set of anchors and 3 additional bolts to the second set. Stick clip for first bolt.

The first two bolts were recently rebolted with fat, stainless steel hardware donated by Climbing Magazine's Anchor Replacement Initiative. The bolts were moved slightly because of hollow rock, likely encouraged by the preceding years' freeze/thaw process.

It appears I made the last 12a send of this route. A couple of holds broke tonight, including a large and important hold, now making the route significantly harder than 12a.

The upper anchor now features new hardware courtesy of the ASCA and ARI. The old anchor was a rather "gross" affair as seen in the picture below.

Also, despite the broken holds this is still climbing at the 12a/12b level.
