Super easy climbing following a vertical crack through many horizontal cracks and seams leads to a couple of 5.8 face moves at the top.


At the far right end on the west side of the Breadloaves, between Passion for a Thrashin' and Stiff Vegetables.


A few small to medium sized pieces in the vertical crack will adequately protect the easy climbing to the upper face. The guidebook mentions "less than ideal protection," but there are now two bolts on the upper face making it very safe.

Anchors? I don't know. But enjoy taking my booty biners from the two bolts.
