Alternatively, a red Alien and a green Alien can be used between the 3rd-to-last and 2nd-to-last bolts. Sep 12, 2014

This route starts just right of a right-facing dihedral with fractured rock. Surmount the crux bulge about 15 feet up, and tip toe up the slab.

The crux is between bolt 1 and bolt 2, but at least you can clip the relatively high first bolt before the crux. As per Leo's comment, you can get gear where needed in runout further up. The last bolt is high, and then you make a hard left turn to the anchors for Caucasian Sandal, so a long draw helps. Jul 4, 2018
