Description

In the middle of the Nickel Dome which is located up and left of the Chrome Dome just above Boulder Falls is a shallow corner leading to a crack in the middle of the face. Climb up the corner passing two bolts to a small ledge. Clip the four bolt and head left into a crack system. Follow the crack around a small roof and up to a steep face. Crank up cool moves past two bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Protection

Seven bolts, plus small to medium gear will get you to a two-bolt anchor.

Every single 5.10 on Plotinus Wall is better than this one, so adjust your star system accordingly. Burly, dirty laybacking down low and a single move at the top that is way harder than 10a make the grade a bit suspect also. May 19, 2003
