Partially Closed.

Description 

This is the furthest left route on the wall. Follow discontinuous cracks that range from wide (#4 camolot) all the way down to thin fingers. The crux is found as the thin crack peters out. From a good stance clip a bolt and pull over a bulge. Easy terrain leads you to the top where you will find a 2 bolt anchor. Rap from here or walk off to the west.

Protection 

Standard dells rack with optional #4 camolot, 1 bolt. 2 bolt rap anchor.

Crux at bulge protected by the bolt. Two bolt anchor at top. Nice shade and cool on a hot day.
