Description 

Although seldom done this high-quality line, which requires one to be adept at several styles of climbing and is played out on high quality stone, is sure to bring a smile to your face once you clip the anchors.

A thin slabby section with smallish edges (5.11) is found between the first two bolts on the lower apron and there's another crux (5.10+) higher as the angle steepens and you make some interesting moves up a headwall in a corner to gain a ledge with the anchors. Three stars out of five.

Location 

The left of three routes near the obvious reddish patch of rock.

Protection 

4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap (all bolts 3/8")
