Description 

This route begins with a couple of big moves to gain a stance on a ledge before clipping the second bolt. Than comes an awkward vertical sequence moving through small holds on yellowish chalky rock before some larger holds appear and later several huecos. The main crux is the finish. Above the last bolt are some sloping dish holds which allow for some powerful crimps and/or grunting bear hug moves pawing up a blunt arête to the left. You must top out at the rim of the cliff to reach the anchor.

Location 

This is the Third route encountered as you move up to right towards the North Face along the cliff base. Belay just below and right of the first bolt (black hanger which can be clipped from the start off the loose talus slope.)

Protection 

7 bolts to a Chain Anchor. This anchor is set slightly back from the cliff edge and will chew on your rope if lowering over the edge. Better to extend this anchor or Rappel this route rather than lower off.
