Writing in chalk MORE INFO >>>

Description 

A sustained fun climb on super solid white rock.

Climb up the easier terrain to the high first bolt. Continue up to the overhang where the business starts. Crimp hard and work to a jug and some easier moves to follow. Catch a much needed rest on the ledge and fire the last few moves on the increasingly slopier holds to a balancy finish.

Location 

In between Masuko and Nonameyet.

Protection 

6 bolts and anchor.

Just repeated this route and man, there is a pretty significant run between the last two bolts (20 feet or so?). There is no cruxy movement here, but the climbing is hard 5.10 on chalkless holds. It would be a clean, but very big fall.

There is a bomber cam placement (.3 BD or yellow c4) about 10 feet below the last bolt, about 6 o'clock. This definitely helps with the spook factor.
