Aqualung

Description 

Starts in a left facing dihedral/slot, moves up through 2 bolts, then step right around the corner onto the face and up onto a ledge. Move up-left towards the anchors through sustained 10 moves through more bolts to gain the anchors.

Note: After clipping the last bolt and approaching the anchors, the ledge out left can look inviting, but it makes it impossible to clip the anchors without downclimbing. Instead, as you near the top, move a bit right for some nice holds and a stance as you clip the anchors.

Location 

At the far end of Impact Zone, starts just to the climber's left of the large boulders that you have to descend to continue down the trail towards Shipwreck.

Protection 

7 bolts and bolted anchors.
