Description 

A fun overhanging start (crux) leads to a steep hand traverse. Above is a clean friction face (no bolts, but it's not hard).

Location 

This goes up the right side of a detached flake.

Well-protected at the crux start if leading but the upper face, while easy, is without any protection; perhaps best treated as a solo or highball boulder problem.
