Description 

This route is right of Nemesis. The crux is immediately after clipping the last bolt. Follow the finger flake/limestone rail, by using layback technique and smearing with some face moves on small edges.

Location 

This route is located between Nemesis and Figure Four. Lower off chains at the anchor.

Protection 

4 3/8" newer bolts with a 2 bolt anchor and chains.

Highly recommended to stick clip the 1st bolt to avoid a long fall into the pit that guards the bottom of the route. Giving it a PG13 rating without stick clipping the first bolt.
