Description 

The crux is getting past the second bolt with a easier crux getting to the anchor.

Use the anchor as a protection bolt and then climb to a ledge and clip the second anchor bolt.

Location 

Just left of a wide crack on the right side of the wall.

Protection 

Four bolts to a two bolt anchor with chains.

Crux clipping 2nd bolt. Felt a little harder than Kukulcan. Finish to anchor tricky.
