Description 

Boulder the overhang (the crux) and arrive on a slab. Move right into a right-facing layback crack (first opportunity for pro). Move up the crack and mantle onto another slab. From here, either follow the left-hand crack system to the top (often dirty, but good options for pro), or choose the no-pro slab to the right. This is a good first 5.11, as the crux occurs in the first two moves.

Location 

Directly to the left of Hangtown, on the obvious overhang.

Protection 

Pro to 1.25", or toprope.
