Description

At the toe of the wall (just left of the start of Main Attraction) is a rounded arete with a couple 5.11's on it. The one to the left is a bolted 11b (Grainstem). Make an insecure start and then climb to a stance. Step left to a knob and finish up the fun discontinuous cracks.

Protection

8 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.
