Description

Clip a bolt while standing on the ground (you'll be thankful in a minute), then make some bouldery moves and clip a second bolt before gaining a rest on a ledge.  As you ponder the thin climbing above for a minute or ten, you may grow less thankful for the comfy ledge you stand on, as it will be much less comfy to fall on.  Choose your sequence and commit to thin insecure climbing above.  Once you clip the fourth bolt, breathe a sigh of relief and enjoy some of that all too familiar LCC power-liebacking.  Finish on enjoyable 5.10 slab to the chains!

Location

A bit uphill from Fish for Brains.  Alternatively, if you find yourself rapping off the east side of the fin from the top of Waves of Mutilation, this is the bolted route below the last set of chains.

Protection

Bolts!
