Description 

#19 in the guidebook. The climb itself isn't terrible, but the location and condition of the anchor are questionable at best. The anchor is off to the climber's right and top-roping this route could damage a rope quite easily. As the guidebook says, it's probably best to belay followers from the top.

In addition, one anchor has been significantly eroded and both anchors are extremely loose. They have been placed on a rather hollow sounding flake to boot. This anchor is shared with 'Borrowed Shoe.' Use at your own risk!

Location 

See guidebook, it is pictured and easy to find

Protection 

5-6 draws, one long sling to reduce rope drag on final bolt to the anchor
