Christ on a cracker this thing is full value. It is stiff for the grade, has huge run outs on the upper headwall, crumbly rock, and no lowering chains. Classic.
Start up by utilizing the left arete to gain a jug rail above the first bolt. Traverse right and up on ok holds until you pull onto the upper slab. Now the quest begins up the dirty headwall. There are plenty opportunities to take some massive slab falls on this one so be careful. Thank god it eases up at the last bolt.
Walk left from the Main wall to the line of bolts that wander right, then straight up. It is before the cliff section with Channel zero.
Belay in a bush.
7 Bolts to 2 bolt hangers. NO LOWERING RINGS! Thankfully there was a bail biner at the last bolt.
