Description

This line chases three bolts to the right end of the ledge above "City Slickers". It involves a very challenging mantle crux past the first bolt. I'll give it an "S" rating because the stance for the second clip is just barely in balance and if you haven't set up correctly you're likely to peel off backwards in a nasty, close-to-the-deck slammer fall. I've never taken that fall, but I've seen all sorts of people struggle with the mantle and pitch off trying to stand up. Getting onto the sloping ledge after the clip is no giveaway either, but that move is toproped by the third clip. Two stars for quality stone and a significantly devious crux.

Protection

Three bolts to a two-bolt anchor (shared with "City Slickers").
