Description 

This climb ascends one pitch on the Great Big Wall with two distinct cruxes. Climb easy, low angle rock for 25 feet to the first bolt next to a small (3') juniper bush. Pass the juniper on easy rock another 15 feet to a 6 foot tall, vertical corner with a bolt to protect the crux move -- clip the bolt and pull over on good holds with not much for feet. Above the corner, clip another bolt and scamper left up a short slab to a short wall which is the second crux move (about 5.8ish) protected by another well-placed bolt. Climb over the short wall and move up and right to a two-bolt anchor.

Descent: rappel from the anchor.

Location 

This is on the right side of the Great Big Wall (see photo).

Protection 

4 bolts plus a two-bolt anchor. A bit run out in places on easy rock, but the crux moves are all well protected by bolts.
