Description

The base of the cliff has slowly eroded making the slab start probably much harder than it used to be.
Head up below the corner, past two bolts, following the corner/chimney all the way to the top.
There's a nice areal finish on the left at the last corner.
There's a 5.10 bolted variation finish on the right side 3/4 of the way up.

Location

Left side of the face, below the corner/arete at the two bolts.

Protection

2 Bolts, suggest stick clipping the first bolt.
Standard rack, double #2
Bolted belay/rap.

Very nice stemming in the chimney, too bad its relatively short. Guidebook has it at 5.8. Opening moves on slab are probably slightly more difficult but they are short. Exposed start to reach first bolt Nov 12, 2015
