Bill seconding up the route.

Description 

Clip the low first bolt from leaning across the small gap at the base. Then pull on awkward, sloping holds to a decent crimp to clip the second bolt. Getting to this point is the crux so a stick clip or attentive belayer is a good idea. Fun, positive arête climbing continues past four more bolts to the anchor.

Location 

This route follows the right edge of the east facing wall.

Protection 

6 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with rap rings.
