Description

Balancy moves into a tension-y stance lead to a hand jam and a strenuous pull over the lip (crux) and then a thin and interesting face above that stays challenging. This is good stuff.

Location

This is on the left side of the West Wall, where the overhang angles up and left. Locate the first bolt in the swirly-patterned rock below the overhang. The middle of the 3 bolted lines on the West Wall.

Protection

7 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.

Although not necessary, it might be nice to bring some small gear to plug in after the final bolt. Aug 20, 2015

The crux is around the first bolt. It is not that hard to pull over the overhang. There is a big "jug" hold reachable above the overhang. May 13, 2015
