Description 

Classic Icicle slab climbing. Begin from the top of the small tower at the base of Off Duty. Edge past bolts, then work left before heading up and right to a comfortable stance on the right side of the small roof band. Work left to get established above the roof, then chase small edges the anchor.

Protection 

Bolts. The runout after the 5th bolt can be protected with a small cam (fingers). Lowering uses every inch of a 60m rope. Clean some draws as you descend to gain some length.

The first anchor you find is a rusty Leeper hanger, and a old SMC hanger. There is another anchor above it that is newer, but you will need a 70m rope.

Another party was climbing this route, leader used two draws on the second anchor and JUST came short of the ground lowering with their 70. If you plan to TR with a belay on the ground extend your anchor.
