Description 

Slab 100' to the first bolt, passing intermittent small gear, where the wall gets steeper. Clip this and make a rising traverse up and right, 40', passing a key #3 Camalot placement in the crystal dike. Clip the sceond bolt and enter no fall territory. Climb up and slightly right 30', ending at a solid cam placement in the hanging corner. Jam and layback a short ways up the corner to the ladge and bolted anchors.

A fall after bolt 2 would be long and would land one on bulges below.

Location 

Far left, left of Joke the Chicken.

Protection 

Small offsets, small tricams, and TCUs below bolt 1. #3 between bolts 1 and 2. #2 Camalot for the corner at the end. A #3 Camalot also perfectly backs up the old anchor.
