Description 

New exciting moderate that requires a cool head and some nut placement skills. Hard right off the start and halfway pulling the bulge. Follow thin seam after the first bolt to a horizontal, then link bolts up and left. Two ways to finish; left (from last bolt) for the original exit, or right up the trough is cool but a little dirty. Right variation is more direct and easier for belay.

Location 

Located right off trail in the gap that takes you to Old People's Dome. Start on top of short fin. Single 60m rap.

Protection 

5 Bolts
Micro stoppers to .4 cam size
Slung horn for anchor
