Description

The Crux is between 2nd - 3rd bolt and another b/t 4 and 5. The route is very sustained so pace yourself. The second pitch is a bit scary getting to the first bolt. You will hit a ledge if you blow the move.

Location

Look for eye bolts right of Sidewinder, the popular 3 bolt 5.6.

Protection

Bring a small cam to supplement b/t the 1st and 2nd bolt on the 1st pitch and small - mid cams to protect from the ledge to the first bolt on the second. Some like a mid sized cam to protect the final moves...but it is much easier climbing high on the pitch.
