Description

After clipping the first bolt move up and slightly left with some low angle, thin face moves to a small, sloping lip/ledge (make sure your belayer is vigilant, ground fall potential unless bolts are supplemented by a small cam) and clip the second bolt.  Move out right along the sloping ledge (easier traversing with your hands than with your feet), then up to a good flake.  Continue up steep (overhanging) flakes to a good rail, then up to the anchor.  For the grade, this route has a technical crux between the first and second bolt and a gym-like, physical crux up high.  For its relatively short length this route has a bit of variety, good movement, and is a lot of fun.  Be aware that it (at this point, 7/6/18) hasn't been well traveled and is thus still a bit crunchy in places.

Location

The base of this route is right at the big juniper tree at the bottom of sector Dawson (see overview pic).

Protection

4 bolts, optional small cam (gold/red x4 offset between 1st and 2nd bolt), mussy hooks (w. cotter pins)
