BETA PHOTO: Lower Rosie, start

Description 

This is the layback flake to the right of City Girl on the Renaissance Wall. Layback the lower part of the flake then follow bolts to the right past some crumbly rock. Continue up and right to the anchors of Asian Whore.
A nice looking line that unfortunately gets a bit dirty & crumbly in the middle. Hopefully with time it will clean up

Location 

15 feet right of City Girl at the crack/layback flake

Protection 

5 or 6 bolts to lowering chains/biners
Stick-clip can be helpful since the section to the 1st bolt is a bit funky

July, 2015 we cleaned most of the bad rock off this route. Also added a starting bolt so that you are not forced to place a cam in a slightly flexing finger crack. It cleaned up really nicely and climbs well.

This route is also the start to "Ring Around The Rosie".

Climbs very nicely, but last bolt to anchors is a severe sandbag, as it climbs a tips crack with no feet. The anchor clip stance is also not comfy, and clips off of a strenuous gaston. However, one can yard off of last draw and clip the anchors.
