As you're climbing this overhung route, you may think to yourself, "There are no holds ANYWHERE!" You're mostly right. Tough sections are until the first bolt and from the third bolt up, with the crux lying between the 3rd and 6th bolts. Footwork is key.
Tips:To set a toprope for this climb, walk on top of the Main Rock to the side facing the ocean and rappell from the anchor located there. As you're rappelling, descend down and right (facing the rock) about 15 ft. You will be facing a 2-ring anchor. This is the anchor to set for this climb.
The section until the first bolt warrants the climb's "serious" rating, as it involves a dangerous fall either on toprope or lead. Climbing to the first bolt is tough and it's very possible to fall on the sharp corner of the belayer's rock.
The belayer may get a little wet as high tide approaches; try to do this climb when the water level is low.
