BETA PHOTO: Start of antline

Description 

The greatest line in the Angeles.

Up scoop to undercling, transition into this, tenuous moves right to the crux and into the dihedral with thin crack - up this to roof. Trickyness and long reach to left and under the roof, burly mantle leads to knobby face and fun cruising.

Location 

The obvious line, undercling, shallow dihedral, roof, then knobby face.

Protection 

Many thin to medium. Often TR'ed and rightly so.

There seemed to be a bee's nest in the prominent small roof feature on this line, on the date of this posting.

The thin crack just under the roof was really moist from bat or rat piss today. It made the bomber finger jams really slippery and gross.
