Description Suggest change

Typical LCC slabbing at an incredible and improbable angle. Work your way up unique chickenhead mantles interspersed by spacial voids of holds.
Finally finish up the last part of the climbing on slightly easier but just as committing moves far above your last bolt. Top out directly or traverse to the Plumb Line chains.

Location Suggest change

10 feet to the right of Plumb Line is a giant chickenhead. Surmount the chickenhead, clip the bolt, and try to make it to the next one without falling. Repeat.

Protection Suggest change

3 bolts. You can try to put in a very small cam at the top but it's an exercise in futility. Good news: the lower cruxes are all protected by a bolt.
