Ryder climbing Me First Eyepatch. Fun moves on thi...

Description 

Begin on the second bolder and climb a steep, thin face with small pockets. The crux at the third bolt is very technical and the moves are inconspicuous. Be sure to find the hidden clipping stance!

Beta:
Contrary to looks, it is easiest to follow the bolt line directly (you'll see what I mean if you get stuck in the pod on the left). Clip the third bolt from a solid mono to the right of the bolt line. After the 4th bolt (on the ramp), reach high and clip the fifth bolt over the roof. There is an original bolt below the roof that could be used as a confidence clip to protect the easy but intimidating move to the next clip, if you use it, be sure to back clean it or you'll be stopped short by rope drag.

Protection 

6 Bolts

Six titanium glue-ins. Ram's Horns anchor.
