Start by making some powerful awkward moves to get to the first bolt. Passing the first bolt a slight runout on an easy slab is encountered to get to the second bolt. Continue up the slab to the crux bulge, clip the third bolt, head slightly right, find some small crimps and pull the small bulge. From here slab your way up to the anchors passing the occasional difficult move.

As the guide mentions my partner attempted to go left at the crux bulge for the 10c grade. Here there was a large flake that sounded super hollow, use this with extreme caution or better yet pull the 11a crux.


Between Sidekick and Precious. The climb is just before the cliff turns overhanging where Precious is.
