Description 

Sport climb to the right of Mecca Lite. Starts off relatively easy, then a reachy crux on some slopers. Higher up step right to small corner, then up cool flakes to a big reach left for an undercling under a small roof. The final bit before the anchor looks really hard but there's a pretty good hold to mantel off of. High quality.

Protection 

Bolts, 2 bolt anchor/rap.

The hardest bit by far is getting established on the undercling at the roof just below the anchor. It's a big stretch on sloping feet to even reach it, but then after letting go with the right hand you have A LOT of swing to check in order to not barn door. One of the better routes in Mecca!
