Almost to the belay ledge.

Description 

Climb Grave Line or Slip...Not! first to gain a fairly large ledge with a 2 bolt anchor. If memory serves me correctly, the 2 bolt anchor that is above Slip...Not! is the one we belayed from. If you climb Grave Line, you just need to do a short easy traverse over to the other anchors.

From the anchor, head straight up past 6 bolts (cold shuts) to another comfortable 2 bolt anchor. For me, the crux was a mantle between the 5th and 6th bolt. Do a single rope rappel back to previous ledge or continue up Heinous Cling (11d), which I have never done. Enjoy!

Protection 

6 quickdraws. 2 bolt belay anchors.

I counted 8 bolts. Crux at #6. Good holds must of the time. Great extension from Grave Line with just a little (15 foot) traverse to the right on a safe ledge.
