Mike Prince starts up Halitosis.

Description 

Climb up to a short crack, make a tricky move to the first bolt and another tricky move above it to gain a horizontal seam. Stand up on this and clip another bolt, then begin a 12' stretch of near-pure friction climbing before things ease off.
This is a good line for practicing friction technique.

Location 

Begin at the lowest point of the slab.

Protection 

The first difficult move is protected by a good .5 C4 in the initial crack; the rest of the slab is protected by bolts. The horizontal seam 16' up has no place for gear, btw.
