"Short Cut". Photo by Blitzo.

Description 

This is a mildly overhanging face with large, positive holds. After the first bolt is a fun hand traverse to the left. The crux move is an insecure step up to a no hands stance, just after the traverse. Some delicate 5.9 moves take you to the top.

Location 

This is on a separate boulder in front of the main formation, and well to the right of Handicapped Zone.

Protection 

3 bolts plus gear for the anchor

Pretty fun but it's over all too soon. It helps to have some big cams (up to 4") for the anchor.
