Description 

I'd rate this as a 3-star climb because it's a really fine example of a pure friction slab. Don't waste any time looking for holds, just smear and go- it's better if you don't think about it too long! First bolt is a pretty safe clip, then puzzle out the moves left. This is the crux of the route and it takes place below the first bolt. Higher up it'll get quite sporty, but always plenty of bolts to keep you off the ledge. An intermediate (2-bolt) anchor has been added at the ledge after the first two bolts.

Location 

It is the far right route on Domestic Dome. It looks like you could easily reach the anchors by hiking up the right side, but it's a safe lead.

Protection 

Bring seven draws plus two for the anchors. Maybe one long sling or draw for the intermediate anchor.
