Description 

This has great moves on vertical, thin feet and small edges and pockets. Powerful and sustained moves will reward you with a clean finish to the top. There is a mini-crux 8 feet off the ground and another crux 3/4 of the way at the top. Continue past the first set of anchors for a 12a section above for 2 more bolts, or about 10 more feet of climbing. The anchor on the 12a section is missing the right bolts, so I suggest downclimbing with personal anchors and rappelling off the lower anchors.

Location 

This route is on the Bone Wall. The route is in the center of the wall with an obvious v-section of overhanging flake to the left of the top of the route.

Protection 

8 bolts to the first set of anchors. 2 more bolts exists above on 12a section.
