Description 

Tenuous and cruxy moves past the first bolt start things off, but the difficulty quickly eases at the second bolt. Pass a ledge and then head up and right to finish up a steep slab with interesting moves.

Location 

Center of the west face, between Benevolent Bruin on the left and La Paws on the right.

Protection 

4 bolts, ring anchors

Awesome climb and really freakin' hard at the start. Fun crimpy/slab climbing all the way!
