Description 

This is a 2nd pitch that could be started at the anchor of Wonky or the pedestal belay at the top of Bamboozled. It follows cracks to the right of the Wonky anchor, at about half way is a sloping slab with the Scissim anchor on the far left. A finger crack goes up here, either finish left on Scissim top anchor with tricky traverse around arrete on the left, or follow bolts out right to Central East wall anchor. There are many variations one could do. To the left of the Wonky anchor is a left facing corner with a thin crack, short but fun 10b. Above this after the slab is a bolted face- Industrial Strength- 11b.

Location 

Center of the East wall, to the right of Scissim.

Protection 

Single rack to #1 Camalot, 2 eash #2 and #3.
My single rack is blue, green, yellow, grey Alien, then #.5- #2 camalot.
3 bolts on upper face. ( if ending at the central wall anchor on ledge below summit block)
2 bolt chain anchor.
2 single rope raps to base.

Possible to reach the base of this climb without climbing Wonky - there is an exposed but easy traverse from the approach trail to the Wonky anchor.
