Description

The start is way harder that suggested by the rating, though the rest of it is fine. Specifically, getting from first to second bolt is a cool sequence and then from the second up to the third is likely at least 5.10 moves and not obvious at all. It's a vertical face with fun, delicate movement and great quality rock. Old school cold shut hangers. Fun climb and well worth the exploration into Lion's Den.

Location

Far left side of Lion's Den with a start on top of a big ledge. As you enter Lion's Den from the top of "Trickle and Resin" you'll walk to the base of the cliff and note the bolts just a few feet to your right. Easy to locate the line when standing on the "Trickle and Resin" belay ledge".

Protection

Six or seven bolts, no need for supplements. Top does not have an anchor and so set up a gear anchor for belay (easy to sling rope around a boulder).
