Description

At the far end of the boulder, start sitting with your right hand in an undercling bucket, left on whatever works. Move up left to a small but good edge, up right to a sidepull pinch, then left into a two-finger "bullet hole" pocket, then right hand under-cling pinch. Avoid the crack leading up the boulder on your right (the jug holds). Move up left through a good sidepull pocket and a small right hand sidepull before topping out just above a small boulder (perched on the stone slope). Technically an eliminate but a good one. The v7 version of this line was the original version before the good pocket high and left was discovered and cleaned. Very few people climb the line this way now, but if you feel like a taste of the past feel free to avoid the good pocket before the topout.

Location

From the Recovery cave head left down the trail around the boulder. Follow the trail to the right and walk to the far end of the gully-like pathway between an overhanging boulder on your right and a slab on your left. The climb is on the overhanging face.

Protection

Several pads (helps to have some propped up on the slab for a fall at the top).
