Description 

Another line on the Oz formation that was originally done all-gear; this one has been fully retobolted. At least 3 of them are completely unnecessary IMO, as they are adjacent to a crack. A fun line regardless of the ethics.

Face climbing up vertical layaway edges (crux) leads to a crack. Follow the discontinuous crack up and finish with more face climbing.

Location 

Right-most bolted route on the North face, at the top of the trail as it goes uphill and ends at a big boulder.

Protection 

7 bolts to 2 bolt lower-off anchor.
