Description 

Another good hard face climb at echo. This is the tempting line up the smooth face w/ two bolts, just left of Live Free Or Die part 2.
What can I say, the climb is just how it looks. 5.9ish at the start, protects with a yellow alien. Difficult crux (.11b)on small holds for your hands, and even smaller for your feet. It may take a few tries to figure out(a hard onsight). Much more moderate climbing (5.8)to the top and a tree with rap rings.

Location 

Just left of Live free Or Die part 2 on the steep smooth face w/ 2 bolts.

Protection 

Not too much..I used a yellow alien, 2 draws, #.5 and #2 Camelot....and I slung the bush halfway up due to the near groundfall potential after the crux (don't fret, it's on easy ground).

Cool moves at the crux that I think are short guy friendly. Plenty of gear even if you don't sling the bush...
