Climb up a large slab underneath a huge overhang that moves left. This is found in the center of Discovery wall, 50 feet left of The Swallow Crack (5.6). This sits under the largest roof on the right half of the wall where there is slab climbing underneath.

Once you're under the roof, you'll be able to get nice and comfortable with the roof as the holds on the slab and vertical inner traverse section become really loose. After the exit, climb up left and over the slabby section, or continue upwards for an excellent 5.10c ending.


2 really crappy 1/4 bolts protect the loose crux and 2 really excellent bolts protect the exit. You'll also find a piton on the way up if you head up the middle of the slab, but by the time that you need it you're long past it.

If you keep right, you can stick pro into the crack from small to medium in length.

Bring slings for all bolts and any pro that you place.
