Description 

Climb the very blank face straight up to the first bolt hole without using any good holds on or near the corner to the right. Head for next bolt hole and to top.

Protection 

Bolts may have been replaced, but usually top roped. Small cams and nuts useful above last bolt if being led.

No bolts have been replaced on this route. As often related, after the first (and only) bolt there is groundfall potential. The earlier bolters must have known what they were doing. Fine as a TR, but involved to set-up.
