Marcus winning the battle


Located between the Thief and Central Limit. A few tricky moves get one quickly to a jug-rail. From here one can either hand traverse right on jug-rail until under the next bolt and then straight up or proceed up to large flake/corner, then right across the top of the flake/corner towards the next bolt. Both paths then proceed up from that bolt into a shallow right facing corner below a bulge. Clip the bolt on the bulge and pull over onto some tricky face climbing (crux) straight up to the anchors.

I thought this one had some fun moves. The 1st 3 bolts need to be reworked and straightened out a bit. I reached down and unclipped the second after I had clipped the 3rd.

Definitely skip the second bold or unclip once you get the third clipped. Short but some cool moves
