Missed the first belay ledge; it must go more left above the ring pin. Note: The bolts on the last pitch are exactly the same color as the surrounding rock. On a shady afternoon, I missed the lower bolts and climbed a series of mossy groves above and right of the chain anchor and then traversed back left to the black streak. Really enjoyed the adventure.
