Description

As several routes go up to the same anchor above this pitch, it is often done as a one-pitch climb, whether just TRed or to set up a TR. Hence, I separated it from its original 3-pitch listing.

Face climb up to a ledge, about 15-feet up, clip a bolt, and start laybacking the offset edge (a mini arete), smearing with the feet (crux). Then relatively easy face climbing to the anchor.

Location

It starts lower-down and left of the obvious right-facing groove-ramp (first pitch of Racer X). Look for the layback offset-edge. Start directly below.

Protection

Three bolts for the hard climbing. You might be able to place small pieces below the first bolt and after the third.
