Scramble up either the dirty slope form the right or direct below on cleaner rock, but arrive at the base of the short vertical face.

Clip the first bolt and make a good sequence of move directly up the face to clip the next couple of bolts.

Continue up the slab with interest until possible to trend leftwards near the top to reach the anchors.


Right side of wall


6 bolts, double ring anchors (equipped with Mussy Hooks).

just one tip, make sure you are awake for the move past the first bolt.

I don't know if my beta was off, but this climb (at least at the very start) felt harder than 5.6. It just felt awkward.

I'd agree, the move at the bolt is awkward or weird or hard to figure out. 5.7

Pro description mentions Mussy Hooks installed as anchors. THIS IS NOT CORRECT. Only rap rings were on as of Sept 4, 2016.
