Description Suggest change

Located thirty feet left of the first pitch of C'est la Vie. Climb up and right from a ledge to clip the first bolt at about 15-20ft. It is necessary to make one solid 5.10 move to clip the bolt (this is a little scary). Make first 5.11a move up to a second bolt (a bit of a reach to clip if you're short). This protects the crux move. Pull up to the third bolt and move straight right for another hard move. Continue up to the anchors below C'est la Vie dihedral at 80 ft. Awesome face climbing. Good stances. Can be easily toproped from anchor on-you guessed it-C'est la Vie.

Protection Suggest change

This is an eighty foot pitch with three bolts (one at each 5.11 crux move). It is possible to place a small wire between the first and second bolt. Otherwise there isn't really any other pro (hence the trad definition).
