Description

To the left of Pentapitch, the route is rarely occupied.

Getting to the first bolt after slotting a nut or two and sinking a tcu to begin the leftward movement puts you on your toes. Sidepulls and smears get you to the first-pitch belay. The second pitch is a bit harder but is protected well with 2 bolts and a old pin.

Protection

A single set of small cams up to 0.5 (doubles in the 0.5 size were helpful to protect up to the first bolt), with a set of small nuts (offsets being useful).  Then draws for the bolts and pin.
