Committing start to clear low, bolt-protected roof on right (climbing left, on arête through roof, is 5.11 opening moves). Stay right of arête past bolts and ledges to large ledge right of Talon's Grip anchors. Don't get lured right by the anchors. Continue to the top of feature using small to medium protection to 2 bolt anchors climbers left of small tree. Single line rap, but not really that effective for TRing.


Marked on the overview map, this is the long line to the right of the two sport routes in this sub-area.


Small to medium cams, though you could also use a #2 and #3 up high if you had them. 5 bolts.
