Description 

Just like in the days of old, Nathan put this one up in good style. If you are not efficient at placing Ophir gear, you had better leave this one off the list for awhile.

Sixty feet of slab, with the occasional good placement, lead you to a fifty foot headwall with two bolts in it. If you are efficient at placing gear, the thin crack will take your ideas in between them, if not, run it out on excellent and solid 5.9+ to the safety of the next bolt. A stopper move lurks at the top before it eases off, then more air to the anchors. This has great movement, the best climbing of the three "easy sport" climbs in this area. It is not for the faint of heart!
