Scramble up to the good first ledge, traverse out right, clipping the first bolt, and pull the roof. Once you are on the ledge above the first roof, the second bolt is low, and the third bolt is easily reachable, making for an optional second bolt. (Skipping the bolt does not seem to add any serious runout, but evaluate yourself.) The rest is decently pumpy, and clipping the anchors is not without some work.


Where the approach trail meets the cliff, this is the rightmost bolted line the ascends the overhanging corner. It is directly right of Moonshine.


6 bolts to bolted anchors
