Description 

Another classic! Layback an obvious left-facing flake to a face passing several bolts to ledge. Belay here of continue forty feet to a bolt anchor. The original second pitch (Breakfast of Champions, 5.9+) is now easily combined with the lower section by continuing straight up the face past bolts to a new anchor below the room on the Cross-over ledge. The original route had only one bolt on the face above the initial flake.


Location 

Right of Reckless Abandon.


Protection 

Bolts.

Falcon guide gives it 10c....which is surely more honest than a incredibly sandbagged 5.9.
