Description

Make a campus start and climb up the low roof to reach a stance and break down. Shake out. Climb up the right side of the break down and traverse left to clip the 3rd bolt. From here, the route gets steep on perfect white stone. Climb up and find a way to reach the nice hold below the 4th bolt (crux). Keep it together and make a big reach to the jug below the shuts. If the entire route had moves and rock quality like the upper half, it would certainly deserve more stars.

Location

This route is located at the far right side of Area 51. Continue until you find a huge roof with only 1 project line on the right side. Pass the roof and find a blocky overhanging section of white rock. This is the right most line on this wall.

Protection

4 bolts, drop in shuts.
