BETA PHOTO: Picking Sumo's Nose

Description 

A fun two move wonder. Start on the right side of the cave/sumo's mouth. Climb ramp up to second bolt. Stem wide and pull the first hard move to get to the left angling rail above the cave. Hand over hand across the rail until you can insert yourself into the sumo's nostril and cop a rest. One more hard reachy move past the forth/fifth bolt gains a ledge, then fun 5.9 pockets to the top. A little less sharp than some of the other routes.

Protection 

6-8 bolts + chains
