Just a few more moves... Thanks to Eric for hangin...

Description 

Originally thinking this line would be much harder, we were very plesantly surprised at how great the eyebrows were up high. If this were a longer route it'd definitely get 4 stars. Very much like climbing at Looking Glass with wild brows on steep stone.

P-1
Climb onto a small ledge just above the ground to place your first piece - yellow tcu size out right. Boulder out to good holds and a bolt, then up to a stance. Move up and right onto the eyebrow laced face and climb past buckets and a few slopers. The face is protected by 2 bolts and cams up to a # 2 camelot. A final bit of steep brow climbing gains a slab that leads to a 2 bolt anchor at about 80'.

P-2
Climb a short steep wall on cool holds past a bolt to easier terrain. Slightly runout climbing gets you past a couple more placements to the top and a 2 bolt anchor just below the trees.

Location 

Just right of Baynes corner, and left of unknown/unnamed line (which is also good).

Protection 

standard rack to # 2 camelot
