This climb starts 15 feet right of [[110358303] and climbs up the prominent slab ramp. At the second bolt, move to the right of the bolt line by 3 feet, and climb up the delicate slab clipping the third bold as you go. At the second seam, clip the fourth bolt, and then make the thin, delicate slab moves up and past the bolt for the crux moves. For the 4th and fifth bolts, stay just to the left of the blunted arete feature.

There are no anchors: you can build a anchor with a BD #0.75 and #1, but bring long cord to reduce rope drag.


15 feet to the right of The Groove Thing, find the bolted line.


5 bolts.

There aren't any hangers on the bolts, taken by the same person who removed the bolt from the adjacent 5.7? No fixed anchor up top. Jul 28, 2015
