Description 

Climbs the right side of the face, starting in a horizontal seam. Good edges climb the face, protected by gear to four bolts on the face protecting the top. At the top, if you stay more on the face then it's a tad harder but the rock is cleaner than that found on the right. Finish on a good ledge with the anchor.

Location 

First climb left of Been Caught Stealin'. Left of a chossy chimney.

Protection 

Gear from 0.4 to #2 Camalot with a red tri-cam being very helpful. Also, four bolts on face and a two-bolt chain anchor.

Just as a heads up, the gear getting to the first bolt is less than ideal. Be solid at the grade if you hop on this one. You can get an ok #0.5 Camalot in a shallow placement after the first good horizontal.
