Excellent climbing! We climbed it on TR. This is the standard rappel descent for the wall. I thought this was very difficult for 10A, and I would only lead it if I could stick-clip the first bolt. Otherwise, you must make cruxy moves over a bad landing to clip. Once the first bolt is clipped, the climbing continues to be difficult(5.10c?), though the bolts are in good positions. After four bolts, clip another bolt and climb a funky, awkward groove to anchors. I would recommend this lead to solid 5.10 leaders with a stick-clip for first bolt.


This is the second climb to the right of the Bronc. Single rope rappel.


5 good bolts and optional small nuts or aliens for top groove.
