Description 

Start with a tricky mid-5.10 move around the first bolt, then cruise easy ground until you make an interesting move left at the third or fourth bolt (use a long runner here).

You are now at a pretty wild overhang with two fixed draws. Easily clip the first one from the big rest stance, then pull the first move to clip the second.

Now for the excitement: hand traverse right on poor holds with your feet dangling below. Put your heel up on the hand rail, then crank up with a powerful move to a huge jug.

Above that is beautiful face climbing on knobs with great feet.

Location 

This is two thirds of the way across Tier 2.

Protection 

9 bolts, anchors.
