Description 

Blocky start to a widening crack. The crux comes pulling past a chockstone onto a small ledge near the top.

There is some suspect rock in the first 20'...I added 2 bolts after the FA to protect this section. The rock here isn't fall-off-in-your-hands bad, I just wouldn't want to place gear in it. The second bolt in particular (which is just below a good nut placement) is mostly there to discourage climbers from placing a lower piece behind a large hollow block. The rock is solid and the gear is good for the rest of the route.

Location 

Far left side of the crag; look for a 2 bolts to a crack.

Protection 

2 bolts, gear to 3", rap anchors.
