Description 

If the whole climb were as sweet as the last 50 feet this thing would get 4 stars from me for sure. It is unfortunately guarded by some funky climbing in the first 25 ft. Don't let that deter you as it is absolutely worth doing! Just wanted to warn you that its not a straight forward romp for the grade.

Pull a strenuous move or two off the ground (careful footwork will pay off) and gain a stance. Figure your way through the quartz section moving up and right on indistinct hand holds (don't get suckered out left). The crux is getting up on to the next ledge, easier if you have a long reach but doable either way. From here on up it is some of the sweetest climbing on the cliff.

Enjoy it then come down and tell all your friends the beginning was easy ;)

Location 

The farthest left bolt line at the Pit.

Protection 

8 bolts to pigtail anchors.
