BETA PHOTO: The dirty start to fly away. Overhang section visi...

Description 

Interesting moves down low bring you past two bolts and up onto a sloping ledge. Move up the sloping ledge and start up great holds on the overhang. High third bolt. Don't pull too hard on the flakes. They are feeling pretty hollow.

Location 

Far right side of Brilliant corners wall. Fallen tree points directly at the start of the climb.

Protection 

Not going to mark it as PG-13 but I think a note of caution is good. A fall if you blow the high third bolt would mean hitting the sloping ledge. Protection before the overhang will keep you from going all the way down but will not keep you from hitting the ledge. small stoppers or medium cams before the jughaul roof. Thigh sized tree at the top.
