Description 

Starts directly right of the Aztek Warrior crack above a piece of graffiti that says RIP. Rivet ladder with 5 rivets to hook moves to the chains. One of the hook moves is rather reachy. Probably A3 if you don't clip the bolts on Aztek Warrior, and A1-2 if you do.

Protection 

5 rivet ladder. Mix of 1.25in buttonheads, 3/4in machine heads, and 1in SS machine heads. Top rivet is bent and gives way to reachy hooking in "natural" concrete bubbles. Three of the "bubbles" have been enhanced, but its hard to tell from below which ones are the good ones. Good luck!

Must be pretty exciting hooking on concrete, and with grounder potential.

It's nice though to have the variety.

Originally aided solo off ground level belay bolt, without clipping bolts on "Aztek Warrior". Unless you are feeling particularly adventurous, I would recommend clipping the third bolt on "Aztek Warrior" before the hooking starts to avoid that grounder potential.
