Description [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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 [Edit]

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).
