Description

Really solid feet and wide ledges make for a route that's not terribly physically demanding, but what it lacks in pump-factor it makes up for with some interesting technical moves above bulges.

The first crux comes just above the third bolt as you move through a notch in a bulge. There are decent holds here if you fish for them.

The second crux is just below the anchors, where you're faced with an entirely blank looking bulge. You can go left here into the crack or for a more unique experience go straight up and mantle the bulge. I don't want to give it away, but it's not hard if you can find the right positioning.

Location

Leftmost line of bolts in the Middle-earth area. In other words, the first line of bolts you'll encounter after taking the left fork in the trail. Look for a nice level rock at the base of a tree to belay from.

Protection

I've seen people place gear lower down here, but the climbing is easy enough that I didn't bother. I felt perfectly fine leading this on just the bolts.
