Description 

A couple easy face moves past a standard bolt lead you up into a crack/flake/arete and a line of glue in bolts. From here you can layback, jam, offwidth, face climb, or whatever suites you. Lot's of sweet kneebars to be had.

I dont know who bolted this or FA but all the routes on this wall are well worth doing. This wall has the best cluster of moderate routes at Post Falls and should get more traffic. Don't miss them!

Location 

On Upper Fifth, Left Side. Two routes to climbers left of gyno boy. It's the far left route on the wall and the only one with glue-ins. The guidebooks say a 5.11 used to be here but it appears that someone chopped it.
From left to right: missing/chopped 11, Layback?, Peter Beater, Project, Gyno Boy, the Mangler, Mangled up in Blue.

Protection 

6 glue in bolts to chains. Probably rap the route as there is a lot of rope drag.
