Description

Start as for the bolted line on the left side of the face, but move up and left from the first bolt, through an improbable-looking series of small edges and smears. Reach the patina at its far left side, just to the right of the second rusty old bolt of the west prow. Continue climbing the left edge of the patina to the bolted rap anchor. Rappel to descend.

This can also be done as a completely independent line (5.10a) by starting to the left with a high left foot and thin flakes for the hands. Easy to spot the line in the accompanying photo. Jan 16, 2012
