Northeast face

Description 

Route is located to the right (looking from below) of the Moss Slab. From the start, you gradually work towards the right, following the crack. After the first or second foothold in the crack, beginning traversing left (this will put you between the middle (horizontal plane) of MS and the crack to the right. Holds are crimpy and almost non-existent. Footing can be slippery, but part of the fun is feeling your way up the wall with your hands and feet. It's doable, but you have to be patient and trust your shoes/rocks. The crux is the ledge 4 ft below and to the right of the anchor bolts.

Location 

Northeast face. You can belay or rappel down or top out over the edge.

Protection 

Two anchors at the top. Use self-equalizing anchoring at the bolts, and keeps those knots as close together as possible, as you'll be sending quite far to the right of the bolts.
