Description 

The big, obvious left-facing corner next to 96 Degrees. Not quite "fully bolted" as the Supertopo states (and I'm not sure why it's bolted at all...). You'll at least want a piece of gear before the second bolt. After the second bolt, then it's a sport climb to the top. Crux is in the upper section.

Rated 5.11a in book, but it's easier than Gold Dust (10d) and Heathenistic Pursuit (10b+). Good warm-up for the area. You can just barely lower-off with a 50m rope.

Protection 

A couple medium (1.5" to 3") size cams. Mostly sport-bolted.

You can easily lead it entirely on gear with a full rack to 5".

Felt insecure and awkward at times on the first lead, however, once the route is more familiar, it can flow really nicely.
