Description 

Begin near the right end of a large south-facing boulder adjacent to the south face of the Snickers formation. A reachy move on a slightly overhanging face gains the first of six bolts. Continue more or less straight up on positive hand holds to the fifth bolt. Move left (crux) on slopers and up past one more bolt to the top. Fun and well-protected climbing on grainy but solid rock.

Protection 

Quickdraws for six bolts. A bolted anchor with runners is on the flattened top of the boulder.
