A couple of moves lead to a short crack down low, followed by slabby face crossing a couple of horizontal breaks. The crux is in the lower section and protectable. The 'R' is for the top section that is a much easier bolt-protected slab/face.


A few yards left of Exfoliation Confrontation (5.9) and just right of (finishing to the same anchors as) Hang Em High. Identifiable by the two well-spaced bolts up high.


Pro to hand sized, two bolts protect the upper half. Continue back from the topout about 10' to a two bolt anchor/rap station on the wall above the topout ledge.

Lower section seems to be the crux. Protectable with medium size nut in vertical crack and/or larger cam just below in horizontal. If you can make it past the lower section to clip the bolt, the upper run-out should be no problem for you.

If this route took better pro down low it would get a few more stars from me.
