Description

Tricky crux moves lead off the ground to a shelf, one might find pro in the crack here. Step left to knobs on the slab above and climb them, sans pro, to the top.
The name says it all. It adds little or nothing to the overall quality of the Belleview. It just seemed like something that needed doing. Utilizing the crux-eliminating traverse in along the shelf might make this a decent TR for beginners.
Be aware that, while the climbing gets easier as one ascends, there is no gear. Append a 5.3X mentality when leading this.

Location

20' right of Belle Bottom Crack, below a tiny, rounded corner below a horizontal crack.
One could step up farther and traverse out on the horizontal crack, which would circumvent the crux moves, but still entail unprotected climbing above.

Protection

1 cam, probably a #1 C4. A #4 C4 might go in the crack higher, but effectively, this route has no pro to speak of.
