Description

The lefthand route on the Oyster Bar proper. Fun, thin edging trends up and left to an intersection with the arete. Going out on the arete makes the climb only moderately easier as the harder moves are lower. This route has maybe slightly harder moves than Oyster Bar, but is not as sustained. I didn't give it an "s" rating but getting to and clipping the 2nd bolt involves the thinnest climbing on the route and a fall while clipping the 2nd bolt would definitely be poor.

Protection

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap

Slightly harder than it's neighbor to the right, and as mentioned falling before the 2nd bolt is best avoided.
