Jared B at the horizontal pocket placement. A pain...


Follow the hand crack through a bulge using edges out right togain the face. Look for .4/yellow or green Alien placement, a DMM #2 nut slots well a little higher to the left. Place a #1camalot in the left most horizontal pod just before entering the shallow bomb bay with a single bolt.Clip bolt from the huge jug. Move through the bulge to the anchor.


Look for the hand crack that spits the lower face, 20' left of the arete


.5, #2, #3, yellow alien, #2 dmm nut, #1 1bolt in that order.

It has a steep finish, bolt protected, and is a lot of fun!
