Description 

This is a shady sport/ TR on the Elementary Wall. It has 2 bolts leading to a 2 bolted anchor. It has a run out potential.

Location 

Head north around the Elementary Wall, and turn west into the shade. You will see an almost vertical face with a couple bolts and some crimps. If top roping, head to the north side of the Elementary Cliff, you'll see a nice juniper. On a ledge right below it, there are some bolts to set up for TR.

Protection 

Quickdraws, 2 bolts, tree anchor at the top (but not necessary).

Tons of fun. I toproped it today because of the runout. Very technical footwork with lots of little sideclings and crimps. The rock was a little dirty in spots, but overall it is a fun route.

Led this after a frustrating shift at work, by moonlight. Really awesome send, the moon was rising just as I got on it. Stoke meter to 11.

A slightly more informative description: start on crimps, moving through 2 bolts on technical steep slab, clipping a third bolt pulling onto the lower angle run out (easy climbing) on the top half of the route.

Why don't you just make your stoke meter go to 10 and make 10 more stoked?

Anyone know anything about the TR around the corner to the right of this climb?
