Some thoughts...
This climb has some of the strangest rock ive seen on a route. Stacks of mica embedded in the rock but exposed and protruding. Some seem solid, some more flexible.
climb unprotected, easy slab for 15ft to a small flake system for your first piece of pro. go up flake system and clip a bolt. pull over bulge on a large pinch and climb through crux section clipping 2 bolts enroute. climb towards crack left of ring anchor and protect your second from swing. Ring anchor to your right is shared with $20 Arete-tion.


start at toe of rock just left of $20 Arete-tion.


3 bolts. small selection of cams fingers to hands will suffice. 2 ring bolt anchor.

Nice route, but MAN, you don't want to fall! Super sharp rock abounds.
