Description 

This excellent face climb is the first route to the right of the stone staircase. It is best identified by a lone bolt (the "original sin" at the Hollow) about 15' up. Saunter up a right trending ramp (easier) or boulder in from the right (harder) to the bolt. Climb the face above past a punchy crux into fun reaches between horizontals (gear in each horizontal crack). Continue to the bolted rap station at the top.

Protection 

One quickdraw and a single set of cams from 0.2" - 1".

Per Michael Lund: there is another bolt.

FA was by Mike Lyle, ground up, in the late '80s.

The first time I led this route I got my finger stuck in a low undercling while making the 'long reach' between horizontals - pretty scary moment as I thought I was going to take a leader fall with my finger facing up - stuck in a crack... managed to wiggle it free and stick the move! Stellar climb - do the harder start to the right - way more badass, and don't get into a finger lock you can't get out of lol!

Very nice climb and not too hard for the grade, great pro. Excellent moves separated by a couple decent stances for placements.

No longer a "lone bolt". There is now a new bolt right above the first horizontal. I happily clipped it :)
