Description 

Very intimidating and challenging this one is. Originally equipped with 7 pins and seriously sandbagged at 12a. The opening 15' is a desperate layback crux but is only protected by a couple pins (one was pulled out by hand) and some decent Rp's. Rest on the giant hollow flake, then pull face moves directly above. Follow crack up and right to arete, passing one bolt. Build anchor on top and needles style rap off.

Location 

Immediately off the road on NW aspect of formation. Just right of the 'T' route.

Protection 

Single rack to BD #2
Rp's/Nuts
1 bolt
No anchor
