Start up the left-facing corner down below the "Slab Tree". Step up the slab to the left to follow bolts and gear up to the 2-bolt anchor with chains....


Thin gear to 2". A #3 Camalot protects the moves up to the first bolt. 2-bolt anchor at top.

Gear between the 1st and 2nd bolt can be tricky. My buddies shoved a blue TCU in the small crack on top of the shelf, but I opted for good horizontal crack way out left on the wall. Either way a double length runner is very useful in that section. Overall pretty fun climbing.
