The first bolt is ~25 feet up easy climbing. There are 2 distinct cruxes. The first one has maybe a redundant bolt, the second was very powerful. We both did both cruxes differently (hence the lot of ways to skin...).

It is not my route, I am just filling blanks in the database as I climb. I hate "Unknown" titles, so I just assign one until someone claims it. This is route #5 in the new Fixed Pin book.


This is just right of Black Streak (obvious 5.12) and just left of Beached Whale (Unknown 2). It's easy to see a bolt in the short, overhanging, orange wall near the top.


8 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. (There are no chains, you may need to cut tat and leave some webbing. There is a quicklink.) Our 70m just reached the ground.
