Description 

Start inside the tunnel formed by the massive leaning block and climb out the right side of the tunnel to the face above. After clipping a few bolts in the first 30 feet or so, you will have the option to step off the main wall onto the top of the massive leaning block for a no-hands rest (or a nap, or a picnic) at mid height. You can clip another bolt from here too. To finish, follow the bolt line up on good holds through the overhangs above.

Location 

Far right side of the tunnel, 15 feet left of the start for Bullocks (5.9).

Protection 

8 bolts, with a standard sport anchor.

The New River Rock Vol 2 guidebook gives this one a 10c rating with only two stars, but this climb felt softer and more fun than that. Maybe the 10c rating assumes no stepping off the main wall onto the top of the huge block at mid height?

I would agree with the stars and the rating. I thought this climb was kind of a nightmare.

Super cool climb, would say closer to 10a/b, though crux is significantly humbling for inexperienced hand jammers (like me) when humid, so I suppoe the c is warranted.
