Description Suggest change

There are a lot of routes on this beautiful slab which sort of run into each other. This one starts a few feet to the right of the right tree.... Thin face moves, head around the left of the bolt on the face to stay on the route. There is lots of fun smearing and such.

Protection Suggest change

Pretty much nonexistent. There is a new bolt (which replaces the POS that used to be there), but it is about halfway up the route. TR is highly recommended. Easiest way to set this is to hike to the obvious gully, rap down to the two bolts that are ~25m above the ground. Then re-set your rope.

Addendum: you can get a medium wire & RP ~15-18 feet up below the white dike if you start from the right, but there is a crux move near the ground without pro.
