Description

The "Grotto" is located on the left side of the wall. Most of the route is 5.5 or easier with a couple of 5.6 moves. The "crux" comes just after you clip the 3rd bolt. Step up to clip the bolt then move up and slightly left of the overhang. For an easier time, clip the 3rd bolt then move right.

Location

To find the start, look for the partially detached flake on the left side of the wall. Stair step your way up the flake to clip the first bolt.

Protection

Three draws is all you need. Although this route "sports" 3 bolts it is not "sport bolted". There's a bit of a runout between bolts but the runout portions are closer to 5.4 or 5.5 so it never actaully feels runout.
