Head up some relatively simple moves, there's a good horizontal crack for a BD X4 #.4 to avoid a run-out, keep going up and get faced with some slab moves, if the next bolt looks too far, then you can plug an X4 .1-.2 in the diagonal crack.


8 bolts, 1x#.4, 1x#.1 or #.2?

The climb is fairly sustained for the first 5 bolts so it almost felt harder than ''pathfinder'', the 5.10a right next to it witch has easier going at the beginning.
