Description

A small bit of trickery will get you slightly off the ground which lends to an awkward overhead clip that you will wish you had waited until you climbed up 10 inches higher to clip. After that wander up and ever so slightly left on the easy ramp to the second bolt. Then traverse right a little bit and clip the 3rd bolt before tackling the bulge. You will want to climb a little right of the bolt to keep it in the 5.8 range and high step right will put your foot on the only foothold around. Continue up easier ground to the 4th bolt which hides until you are on it. A short steep section gets you to the top but the holds are positive. Long slings at the anchor recommended to reduce rope drag.
