Description 

Awesome, low percentage slabbing! Starts as for Mr. Bo Trundle (10d) but shoots straight for the beautiful, left-angling seam. The mid section is stout and ends at a decent rest before the "slab", seam section above. High crux (for me) at about bolt 6. The chains seem pretty far away after clipping bolt 7, but it is cruiser.

Location 

Left-angling seam up (approx center) beautiful, golden, Thindependence Wall (upper tier).

You will be able to pick it out!

Protection 

7 bolts. Can cool temps, sticky rubber & vice grips be part of the required protection? Shares chain anchor with Sunshine Daydream.
