Make delicate face moves off of the ground (crux), and then go left onto a short arete and up to fixed anchors.

Watch out for cars.


5 bolts plus 2-bolt anchor.

Mark took me out to this route, not long after he put it up. I remember onsighting it and thinking that it was pretty easy, because of the crux being right off of the ground, and I don't remember the year. I think it was '94 or '95. If Mark or anyone else has any more info about the date, consensus grade, etc., let me know, and I'll amend the description.
