The Force

Description 

You will be happy if you have small fingers on this thing at the start and the finish.

Start with a boulder problem off the ground making use of a tight three-finger slot. Punch your way through the pocket band getting spragues and pinches, finishing at a jug below the first embedded stone. Move up through a slopey boulder problem, then cruise to the next embedded stone. Head up to the final smoother headwall and make your way up crimps and another tight pocket to the anchors.

Location 

This route is in the middle left of the main wall. It is the third route from the left that starts from the ground and is easily identified by the two large embedded stones that it climbs through, slightly to the right.

Protection 

Seven bolts to a bolted anchor.

Never underestimate the punt potential at the top of this guy. It's easy bolt-to-bolt, but you may find the irresistible attraction of a certain force pulling you downward too strong to resist.
