Description

Start by crawling up in the cave/shelf/bench - it's easy to stand up in here and clip the first (and second) bolt off good holds.

Take a look at where the feet are, because once you stat pulling the starting bulge you can't see anything below. Fight through slopers, heel hooks, and high feet to some better holds.

The climb eases up a little, but there's still lots of tricky face climbing (with a few good rests) to the top. The last bit looked intimidating and blank but gave way quite easily.

I found the best way up the middle section to be decently out right of the bolts - I couldn't find a way straight up, but then again it was raining and the mist coming into the cave made a lot of holds above and out left maybe much harder to grip than normal.

Fun climb. Low crux. Doesn't let up easy. Great view. Ect.

Location

Farthest route in on the left side of the cave, although it's not that far in.

On the left opposite the start of "The Celestial Way of the Dead Cows", at a little cave in the cave. I believe the first bolt was on the underside of the roof inside the small cave-in-a-cave, and the second on the face just above the little roof of the little cave.

Man do I love caves.

Protection

7 bolts to 2-bolt anchor.
