Description 

Roccocater is found just up and right from Yellow Jacket, and follows a face which is found after scrambling up about 20' to a nice large ledge. A thin step left after clipping the first bolt finds you at the base of some thin, steeper face climbing. Climbing past the second bolt and clipping the third is the crux. The climb then eases to the top. A very fun climb but just don't hang out too long and keep cool clipping that third bolt!

Protection 

4 bolts to 2 bolt anchors. It seems all the bolts are a bit to the right of the actual climbing (except getting to first bolt) possibly to keep a falling leader from hitting the corner to the left.
