The Climb 

This is on a decent sized boulder just up and behind the Dog Pile boulder, with the route facing southeast. As per so many of Santee's routes, it is a mantle of sorts.


A TR bolt right in the middle of the rock might be able to protect this. (I imagine the installers of the bolt thought something realistic went up the center of the rock)

Actually a fun problem. The line starts near the right side of the steep face on some sidepulls. Step up, then reach up and right to a wide, slopey pinch. Set your feet and make the huge move up and left to a good hold, then mantel.
