Description 

This old aid route starts just right of Licorice Stick (L-facing dihedral). The bolt ladder of 1/4" bolts angles right up the face. Some may be hard to clip without a long reach. This climb is NOT recommended for free climbing or toproping since the bolts angle so much and are old 1/4". Nice practice for aiding though.

Protection 

QDs and aid gear.

Last time I was here, I couldn't find any bolts on the face. There were two at the top, but they seemed fine. Somebody must have yanked them, or I just might be blind. Idunn

I'm not sure how you get off the ground on this one. I gave up after about 20 minutes. No way is it 12.a. More like 14 something.

The last two bolts are gone. There is a stud for one of them, but the other has been chopped.
