Description

This is the leftmost bolts route on Mid Dome. Though rated at 5.9, but you'd better be a 5.10 climber in order to lead this run out route. This is a face climb up a less than vertical slippery and barely featured slab.

The slabby section below the first bolt is definately 5.9, and that's only if you cheat in from the crack system to the left of the bolt. Climbing directly up to the bolt is probably a 5.10a if not harder. Continue up on sustained featured rock for about 80 feet, and after that the climbing gets considerably simpler.

Continue up until you find something that you want to use as an anchor, and exit the route up and left off the dome.

Protection

2 bolts that have seen better days. Use slings or pro to belay the follower from above using any of the crack, rock or tree systems on the less vertical top section of the slab.
