Description 

This route begins on slabby boulders and protection can be hard to find, you'll blow all your alpine slings here. After a short chimney you'll anchor just 25m up. From here is the crux of the climb, a slightly overhung section but the holds are big and all there, again protection in this section can be sparse.

Location 

The route is pictured on this page. It's on the right side of the wall. look for a chimney 20m up.

Protection 

I took a double rack of Metolius UL Cams and a double rack of DMM Wallnuts. Also at least 7 alpine slings. Almost everything requires extension.
