Description Suggest change

Climb up the shallow, right facing corner past two bolts to an undercling.  Traverse out right and clip the third bolt.  Grab a positive edge around the corner (1st crux, hard to see, easier for long ape index), then work up the lieback flake past the 4th bolt.  At the 5th bolt stem out right (2nd crux) and climb easy moves up a fragile pinnacle.  Keep focus past a couple of grainy moves at the 6th bolt to the 7th bolt (directional) and the anchor on the ledge to the left.
This route has excellent movement and solid hands.  The delicate footwork required on steep friction and crumbling edges adds an element of excitement to the overall character of an (otherwise) fine climb.  Most climbers will find the crux moves to be in the mid to high 5.10 range.

Location Suggest change

Slow Pedal is about 50' to the right of the prominent chimney that marks the left center (and Shadow Dance) of the Outpost formation (see overview topo pic).
