Nearing the finish

Description 

Cruxy pocket moves get you off the ground and past the first bolt, then big holds lead through a slabby section and over the upper bulge. A worthy moderate lead, though short.

Location 

The farthest left bolt line on Nose Rock, starting just right of a pine tree.

Protection 

3 bolts, open shuts

Don't be deceived by the location description, it's to the right of a juniper tree, not a pine.
