DescriptionBegin right of The Importance of Being Ernest (10c) on a small ledge. The crux involves technical and powerful moves past the first bolt. Move left to a corner and up passing three more bolts over a bulge (10+). Then move left to the anchors.
Alternatively, after the first bolt, a two bolt variation goes straight up over a bulge (10+) and then takes a sharp left to the anchors. This climb, also by Bob Gaines, et al. has been named The Bullfighter (5.11b)*.
