Description 

This is a contrived 5.11+/5.12- friction/micro-edging climb up the mostly blank slab between Shoulder Hopper and Pondo Pete. Look for the obvious bolts left of Pondo Pete.

Crux passing the third bolt - I went right then traversed back left above the bolt to a sloper on a white dike. Continue past a bolt and a 0.5" crack in a flake to a good pin. Up and right gains an easy 4"-5" offwidth crack.

Protection 

4 good bolts and a pin, maybe a 0.3" cam to back up the pin. A 4" cam for the upper crack is probably not that important. Thin to 1" cams for gear belay. Climb down and left to the Shoulder Hopper rap anchor to rap off with a single 60 meter rope.
