There's no real crux if you can figure out the sequence between the 2nd and 3rd bolts.


Just to the left of Pond Scum, before the White Wall.


4 bolts, ring anchors.

Due to a hidden (though bomber) handhold, it can be quite difficult to determine the sequence near the 3rd bolt, making for a sketchy lead if 5.9 is near your limit.

With Pond Scum and this one, they both make good warm-up climbs.

Loose 3rd bolt. I was teaching sport climbing and my climber took a couple falls trying to reach the 4th bolt and when he finally came down, we noticed that the nut on the third bolt had almost come completely off. I didn't have any gear with me to tighten it at the time, so hopefully someone can fix it soon. Watch out.
