Description 

This is a short, steep, tightly bolted sport climb located just left of Alibi. Power through a bulge on patina jugs to a tricky stand-up, then make a delicate traverse left to a sloper finish.

Protection 

6 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor (50 feet)

The 5th bolt is tricky to clip. I had no problem clipping it by bridging my right foot and left palm in opposition and clipping with my right hand. Use a long draw and you won't fall as far if you blow the clip.

The 6th bolt is superfluous for the leader and serves as a directional for the folllower to prevent a swing from the last hard moves.
