Right around the first bolt.

Description 

A fantastic sport climb that has all kinds of exciting movement on it. Not so much slabby as crimpy with good quartzite friction. The first bolt is an easy clip but getting to the second is committing. Make sure your belayer is paying attention should you biff it. Follow the bolts up to a ledge and then duck a couple feet right past a couple more bolts to a chain anchor at the top of the formation.

Location 

The right side of the Scorpion Slab. Comes extremely close to the route Scorpion Slab (5.8) in the middle of the route.

Protection 

Quickdraws. Chain anchors at the top.
