Boulder up through the choss band to the high first bolt. Optional #2 camalot here to protect the moves to the first bolt. Jam up the crack as it widens and make the crux moves into the scoop. Snag a rest here and continue up through fun moves past the next two bolts. Hit a cool horizontal crack and traverse left clipping the seventh bolt. From here clip the eighth bolt and decide on a finish; escape left on easy 5.10 moves to the anchors atop Vertical Nothing, or continue straight up to the original anchors at 12+.


Between Nature of the Beast and Vertical nothing. Look for the distinct hand / fist crack that continues through the first three bolts. Just to the right of the start to the slab wall.


8 bolts cold shut anchors
