This 5.10 is on the opposite side of Veiny as Existential Angst. I believe this side faces South or Southeast. Follow the center of three bolted routes on this side of the formation. The crux is right off the ground through the closely spaced first two bolts. After that, the climbing eases to about 5.8 in difficulty. Fun.

I am pretty sure that this could be easily toproped by scrambling up the East side of Veiny.


~6 bolts, give or take one. Two bolt anchor with chain links for rappeling.
