Description [Suggest Change]

New exciting moderate that requires a cool head and some nut placement skills. Hard right off the start and halfway pulling the bulge. Follow thin seam after the first bolt to a horizontal, then link bolts up and left. Two ways to finish; left (from last bolt) for the original exit, or right up the trough is cool but a little dirty. Right variation is more direct and easier for belay.

Location [Suggest Change]

Located right off trail in the gap that takes you to Old People's Dome. Start on top of short fin. Single 60m rap.

Protection [Suggest Change]

5 Bolts
Micro stoppers to .4 cam size
Slung horn for anchor
