Starts around and right from Road Dogs on the right side of the buttress.

Fun face climbing past four bolts and a horizontal crack with a distinct crux/funk type thing over a bulge past the 3rd bolt.

After clipping the third bolt you can reach down and put a longer runner on the second bolt to help with the drag over the bulge. Between the fourth bolt and the top is the horizontal and then the top.


4 bolts (1/2") and pro to 2" for horizontal and anchor.

A 1" piece in the slanting crack will ease your mind before clipping the 1st bolt.
