Up and left

Description 

A decent warm up for the considerably harder routes to the right. Sharp in parts, like other routes on this black limestone, but not terribly so -- this route in comparison to its tougher neighbors follows more friendly, orange rock.

Climb up the obvious pods just right of the cave (that takes you to the North-East face). The first section is a bit tricky, then climb up to the ledge and head left and up to the anchors.

Location 

This is the furthest left of the routes on the North Face, just before the big cave that you climb up and through to head east to the North East Face.

Protection 

Bolts to a 2 bolt chain anchor. Easy to T.R.

I thought the second half above the ledge was the crux. Fun finger jamming!
