There is a route with 4 bolts and an open shuts anchor on the right side of Negress Wall. The crux feels to be around 2nd/3rd bolt. Does anyone know what route that is? It doesn't seem to be recorded on MP.

Edit: Found the name. It is called Mandela (5.11d). Oct 23, 2017

The Negress Wall while featuring the most compact and least friable rock in the gorge, is also the greasiest and most slippery. Jul 13, 2016
