Description

Don't get burnt as you pass 3 bolts with a long reach to a pocket by bolt 2 (this may be height-dependent and harder for short people) and the thin crux at bolt 3 to reach a big ledge. After the ledge, continue up bolt-protected steep face climbing, none as difficult as below.

Would be more classic except for the big ledge you can take a nap on in the middle of the climb.

Protection

7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. A 60m rope is fine to lower.
