Description 

Mostly sport, but as the route crosses a few cracks, a few nuts or cams may be helpful. There are only 2 bolts to an intermediate anchor 70 feet up (just right of a big flake/block on a nice ledge) which I think should be skipped on the way to a 2-bolt anchor at 190 ft. This route finishes in a runnel just right of the Central Crack.

Location 

This route is on the left side the second panel of rock you see on the drive in, on the smooth steep wall between Central Crack and the Flake Route. There is a small apron with a high bolt above a rising crack, perhaps 100' right of Central Crack. Rap' off w 2 60m ropes.

Protection 

7 bolts on P1 and a few nuts and/or small BD cams to .4 for the cracks if you skip the first anchor; 8 more bolts to the anchors at top of P2.
