FX Special

Description 

Somewhat chossy climbing leads to a high bolt. Ever easier face climbing leads past the rest tot he anchors. Ok route, but the second bolt looks terrible and it moves in the hole a bit. Back it up by slinging a chickenhead out left.

Location 

This is the farthest route right in this section. It climbs the buttress with Cool Breeze right around the corner and a left facing dihedral crack to the left.

Protection 

4 bolts (used to be 5, looks like a low one is gone). 2 bolt rap anchor.

1st bolt is too high to stick clip and the low band of choss makes starting this route a little nerve racking. Avoid this route if you aren't really comfortable at this grade. Once above the 1st bolt it turns into an enjoyable climb.
