BETA PHOTO: The first bolt.

Description 

This route is also known as the Original Route. The first bolt is high, and it protects the crux which is the slab above it. The guidebook does not mention that it is a buttonhead bolt. The climbing up to the bolt is fairly easy slab climbing, but a fall would not be good. Higher up you clip the last two bolts on Bottom Feeder. The climb is fun but would be better done on top rope than led. You can do this if you climb one of the routes to the right.

Location 

This route is about in the center of the rock and is right of Murphy's Law and left of Bottom Feeder. Up high you can see a single bolt between the two routes. Rap from a two bolt anchor shared by nearby routes.

Protection 

Three bolts to a two bolt anchor.
