Description

If you are on top rope climbing toward the bolts, the top is very thin. There are good holds to the left in a triangular recess, but you'd be at risk of swinging from there.

The start was a bit nervy, as you step across from the block to the face.

Location

Start on the top of a large block; from the right side, move across to the face.

Protection

Bolted anchor at the top.

I understood this to be about 5.10a/b through the top 8 or so feet straight to the bolts (rather than moving left). Jul 14, 2017

Yeah, the Gunks App says it is 5.8 if you go up and left which is recommended for leading, and 10b if you go straight to the anchor. I did it on top rope, and I went a little left just enough to grab the right side of the triangular recess, and then was able to just make a reachy move to the horizontal above and then touch my anchor.
