Description

Start below Sleeping Beauty and head up left on the low-angled ramp approach to the top of the mini slab. A good stance on top of the mini slab allows you to clip the first bolt. Watch out for a loose block at the top of the slab where it joins the headwall. From there, the business begins. Head up the constantly overhanging face above, pulling hard on small, but positive pockets. The first three bolts on this route are really close together, so watch out for the dreaded z-clip!
The crux comes around the third bolt and then hopefully you have the strength to go the distance to 4th bolt. Above the fourth bolt the climbing is relatively run-out to the chains but thankfully the climbing is on easier, juggier terrain.
Super fun route and a good introduction to 5.11- climbing at Enchanted Tower.

Protection

4 bolts and two newer shiny, goldish chains for anchors. It's obvious there used to be a three bolt anchor up top but that has now been replaced with the two bolts/chains setup.
