Located on the left side of the Negropolis formation. Climbs the steep face on the right side of the Tap Dancing pillar.

10c if you climb the face at the start without stemming on the back wall.


2 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with chains on top.

I was considering leading this, but decided to TR it since it looked kinda run out. Was glad I did. The climbing felt pretty sustained, and it’s a long way from the second bolt to the top. Also, the first bolt is sticking out of the rock and wiggling around a bit. Nice climbing though; reminiscent of Fresh Squeezed.

No TR for us, but looked at it. 1st bolt is up there a bit unless steaming off from the right.... second bolt seemed straightforward then found myself peering from the bottom to see where the third might be......... there is no 3rd! Looked plenty far to the summit from the second bolt and didn't appear to be casual. I'll heed the advice Cho and TR!
