Traverse in from the left past a small gear placement and clip a very high first bolt (which can be stick-clipped or equipped by lowering from Muscle Belly). Unlock the technical and strenuous crux between the 2nd and third bolt then stay on your feet for micro-crimping past one more bolt and a moderate runout to the Muscle Belly chains.

A second pitch continues straight up and encounters another 5.12a crux but we did not climb it. The latest New River guidebook notes that the top pitch is not equipped with anchors.

The first pitch is a great little route in its own right and will stay dry in the rain.

4 bolts + anchors and optional small gear to reach the first bolt.
