Follow a series of corners to the short pocketed bulge above. After pulling through the bulge continue up the slab above following the left line of bolts to the anchors. Long quickdraws on the 4th & 7th bolt will help reduce rope drag.

Protection

7 bolts & 2 open shuts.

The moves down low are cool, but the crux is pulling through a loose muddy roof. Wish I had seen Simon's comment before climbing this. Avoid. Jan 29, 2012

Interesting moves off of the ground and over the roof do not make up for the poor (even for echo) quality of the rock. Skip it. Mar 10, 2011
