On the north side there is a line of 4 bolts leading up the feldspar crystals to the top. It is fun crystal pinching up the sustained slab. 60 feet / 4 bolts = exciting. This is sustained 5.10 for the first 3 bolts, then it is cruiser after the 4th. The bolts seem to be placed to keep one away from the route to the right (kinda contrived but still fun).

4 QDs. Possibly trick offset nuts, Loweballs, etc. in the first crack, but they are not necessary.

The Ark-Valley guidebook lists this climb as 11c, and having climbed multiple tens/elevens in the BV area I'd have to agree with the 11c rating. Fun little climb. Jul 5, 2009
High first bolt uncharacteristic of the area, I second the guidebook's 11c rating. Aug 4, 2012
