Description 

Pocketed arête on left; blunt and well-featured with bigger huecos.

Location 

Where the edge of the cliff changes its aspect to face northwesterly.

Protection 

Old bolts, and I think there's a short crack section, and perhaps I got some Tri-cams in; beware of singing seagulls and their nest-defending territorial swoops, as well as their nests coated with layers of white waste.

Awesome climbing up clean pockets. I didn't realize I should have extended all of the clips long until it was too late and had crippling rope drag at the top. Below the roof I came across a new bolt with a rap ring on it next to an original. Above that is a suspect loose block that you must pull on to reach the last bolt. With too much drag I was too chicken to risk it and lowered off the rap ring. Most of it is consistent easy climbing with a few tricky cruxes thrown in. Up until the loose block concern, the route is four stars incredible!
