Description

Good climbing, but not terribly aesthetic. There are several ways to do this climb, all about 5.10 or 5.10+ The crux is at least above the 4th bolt no matter which is chosen.
Climb past 4 bolts on chunky but solid rock to reach a set of thin cracks, seams, and pods on the left (steep) or to pull around right and continue up a slab with two bolts and a crack... Both options feel like 5.10-something and the right side is probably the better protected- and sunnier.

Location

This is the bolted line on the north-west face of the wall just right of the 'Supervalue' crack and is a few feet right of the fingercrack 'Cold Comfort' which can be used to set a TR if the grade has you wanting a TR.

Protection

Some draws and nuts or small cams. A two-bolt anchor and chains are up top.

Seems like the original line joined up with loose lady at the sunny ledge on the right. The two bolts on the upper slab add a new variation which felt stiffer than taking the cracks on the right. Nov 24, 2011
