Description 

One of the better routes at the South Wall. The first bolt is fairly high, with the crux of the route passing the first bolt, so a stick clip is highly advised. Another thin crux comes a few bolts later, then sustained and engaging 5.10 climbing to the anchors.

Location 

Second route from the left on the South Wall.

Protection 

9 bolts, anchors.

Bring a stick clip for the first bolt. People often use a branch lying around if they don't have one. Stronger climbers and people with the route dialed just climb to the first bolt, but the landing is bad.

Very overhanging until the 3rd bolt, then near-vertical to the chains. Second crux is just before the end of the route, though climbing slightly to the right makes it way easier.
