Description 

Start at the obvious right-facing arch and continue up the right-facing corner to a spacious ledge with bolts and chains. The crux is surmounting a short and steep blank section near the top, with a long reach up and left (harder for short climbers), with protection just below your feet.

Protection 

1 set of cams and 1 set of nuts up to 2 inches

I've changed the rating from 5.8 to 5.9, based on feedback from others who thought it was sandbagged.

There are three bolts connected by chains at the top, but as of 03-11-14 the hanger was stolen off the left bolt.
