Description 

Cool looking feature, but doesn't climb as well as I had hoped. Cruise up 3 bolts of a slab to a tiered roof with 4 more bolts. The business is leaving the slab to get established on the arete of the roof. Bolt 4, the first one clipped before launching out onto the steep stone, is hard to clip. Follow good holds on pumpy rock from here to an anchor on a ledge up high.

Location 

right of the Sanctuary, probably equal distance from here and the Joint wall. Best approached from the Joint staying low.

Protection 

7 or 8 bolts
