Description 

This was the first route bolted on this Wall. Crux is moving left near bolt 3. It might be easier to clip bolt 3 after making the move, but its possible to clip before also.

Location 

2nd route from the right. The route traverses left at bolt 3.

Protection 

Bolts and two bolt anchor. Lower off.

Make the crux then clip. It's MUCH better after the move, & a fall at the crux leaves you a few feet from the deck. If you're pulling the extra rope up you may deck. Seemed a lil tougher than some of the other 10.c here.

Agreed about making the crux then clipping.
