Description 

It didn't look that steep to me, but there isn't much to hang onto. This required some very thoughtful concentration to keep my feet smeared on not foot holds but chalk smears from my hands when I thought there was something there, so I marked it and just prayed that I would be able to stand on it. Somehow it works. Climb straight up through two bolts, step left into decent stance, then go up through two more clips of very thin, potato chip moves. By the time you reach the fifth bolt, the hard moves are over, and it eases up significantly to the anchors. The crux is not rushing and maintaining concentration. My dog started barking at a bush and ruined my first attempt.

Location 

It is up the center of the slab, right of Slippery When Dry.

Protection 

5 draws and something for the rusty chain anchor.
