Description 

This route starts between the two giant holes and follows several bolts up the center wall. Lots of enjoyable steep climbing down low followed by a tricky crux around the 4th bolt. Easier and enjoyable slab follows.

Fun!

Recently rebolted with titanium glue-ins.

Location 

Center wall.

Protection 

7 bolts.

6 new titanium glue-ins plus. Ram's Horns rap anchor.
One of the original bolts (in better condition) serves as an excellent optional intermediate bolt to get the rope above your head on the crux - no reason not to clip it. That said, the falls are safe without it.
