Description 

Start up the first 2 bolts of Barbas, then break right across a face, through a flowstone bulge, heading for a large crack (15' x 3"). Gain the crack and finish up the steep headwall to a single bolt anchor and removable bolt back-ups (2).

Protection 

TR only, but could potentially be led with the addition of one extra lead bolt. Flowstone does not hold pro well and there are no deep features that pass through to the underlying limestone.

Caution: Beware of swing potential on TR as good directional pro is hard to come by.
