Description

A fun bouldery bulge move to the first clip leads to thin, balancy slab climbing above. This first move will be distinctly harder for shorter folks. A good footwork intensive climb. (Comment on name and info and I'll update)

Location

This is the left line located on the small slab on the far left side of Addiction Wall. Two lines to the left of the Unknown 5.7.

Protection

5? bolts to left anchors (2 anchors above the 3 routes on this section of wall).
