Justin on Side Step.

Description 

Side Step 5.3 ** 90' M(5b)
Climbs the shallow corner in the middle of the face, to the side step left at the very top to avoid the overhang below the top anchors (directional anchor at the top lip with the 2 bolt anchors with quick links about 5' to the right)

Location 

On the wall to the north between the Upper West Side cliff and the SE Buttress, in the middle of the gully, climb the shallow corner in the middle of the face. Begin on the large ledge at the base, reached by a 10' 4th class scramble at the far left end of the short headwall at the base (by the broken pine snag). Belay at the single bolt anchor on the right.

Protection 

Mixed 5 bolts, several cams and/or nuts (small to large) needed.
