Description 

This is a 5 bolt climb that follows a series of cracks that angle right. Stick clip the first bolt or clip off a left facing sidepull. The crux is next, pull hard into the first crack, and clip the second bolt. Cruise through the next bolts and gun it for the top! Hidden holds will make an impossible looking top seem much easier. Crux at first bolt and after the last bolt. Pumpy and Safe!

Location 

Madagascar Wall right ater the Sphinx as you are walking toward the Shinto Wall. (FCR) Take the FCR trail, and the wall will be on your right. If you take the long trail that comes from the Mondo pullout, the wall will be on your left.

Protection 

5 bolts to Open Shuts
