BETA PHOTO: Political Asylum 5.7


Short but fairly entertaining this climbs the east face of the large boulder with T-N-T (5.10c), which lies on the north face.

Climb atop a short flake lying against the face to clip a bolt (1/4") which protects crux face moves. Above the climbing quickly eases off, and while slightly runout the climbing is easy enough to not be a concern. Belay from the bolts atop T-N-T and descend off the low-angled west side of the boulder.


1 bolt (1/4"), 2 bolt anchor (3/8") shared with T-N-T
