Description 

Bridge of Sighs to the top of Mammoth rock.
There are two starts to this climb. The left start (Africanized 5.11b) climbs an overhung traverse out of the cave with a thrilling run out to join the bolted line.
The right start is easier and gives an over all grade 5.10c Expect some moderate run outs and hollow, fragile rock throughout.
Could be done in one 60 meters pitch.
Or you can break it in two 27 meters pitches by using bolted anchors station in the cave.
Bolts and chains are camouflaged.
Run out portion on second pitch is on SUPER easy 5.6. All the 5.10 moves are well-protected. On top of second pitch belay from the hole and walk off to descend.

Location 

In center of Mammoth rock, you can see the bolts right from Peregrine/Raptors nest route

Protection 

7-9 draws, long slings
