Description 

Climb 30' up broken ledges and a corner system placing a small 0.3 or 0.4 cam in the corner crack and then a #2 cam in the roof and surmount the roof to a large ledge. Clip the 1st bolt and make crimpy and balanced footwork moves to clip the 2nd bolt and move left and up to larger holds. Climb the left side of the face past two more bolts to chains on anchors. This is a great mixed route.

Location 

This is the far left route of Eagle Wall. Locate obvious corner system to ledge and bolts on a face.

Protection 

A few cams in the #0.3-2 range (a #0.3 and #2 work well), a few slings with biners, and 4 quickdraws for the 4 bolts.
