This climb had runouts of similar (or longer) than Mere Image to its right, but felt much safer as the runouts were on pretty easy rock.
Can get in a med/small cam at the ledge above the second bolt.
Starts just at the right edge of the bushes on the ledge. Aug 5, 2008

I couldn't find any bolts between the crack (mentioned above) and the anchor, which is where the runout section is located. However, the climbing is very laid back at this point. Sep 16, 2010

Very fun climbing, but in no way well protected. There is a place for a small cam up high in a horizontal(Red #4 Metolius I think) but it is dirty and not the best placement. Aug 9, 2011

Fun climbing; fine for the experienced leader. Death runouts for beginners. Usual BS “ethics.” Jul 24, 2018

3rd bolt (leeper hanger) is old and not to be trusted -- you're looking at a potential ground fall anywhere from slightly above the ledge after the 2nd bolt to the 4th bolt. It's easy ground but could be very intimidating for a new leader. Protected the runout at the top with a .75. Aug 20, 2018
