This route is to the left of Carola's Hip and starts with some thin face moves up to the first bolt about 15 feet up. The next bolt is 20 feet up above the roof and you have to get over the small roof (more of a high step onto a head wall than pulling a roof move). There is an overhanging flake to put a #3 or #4 behind so the runout isn't that bad. Once you get to the second bolt and clip you start moving out to the right on the arete/hip. The 3rd and 4th bolt are run out as well. You finish with 25 feet of run out to the top where there is a thin seam you can get a nut in to feel a little more secure.
4 bolts (3/8"), there's places for cams and nuts too. I think you need to have a 60m rope if you're going to TR after the lead, not sure if a 50m would make it.
