BETA PHOTO: 5 bolts to anchors & chains.

Description 

Starts on good ledges. Goes up to some good sidepulls. Goes slightly right along a seam of some more decent sidepulls. Starts to get thin. After the 3rd bolt it gets interesting, watch out for the lighter colored rock on the right that is tempting to use, it's really loose. Above it is much more solid. Work along small edges on the seam to get the 4th bolt. Crux is after this. Route goes left to next bolt. Big reaches with smeared feet on thin holds to get the 5th bolt. Can be hard to find holds. Stand on top of the big ledge to get the anchors and chains. Very beta-intensive.

Location 

Around the corner from the goblin, on the right side of the yeti facing east on the slabby wall.

Protection 

5 bolts with anchors and chains at top.
