Katch on the "home run" of Pulse

Description 

Start on a ledge.

Climb the horizontal roof with good jugs and turn the lip for the crux.

You can look right over to the roof of Sling Fest.

Location 

To the West of the White Wall. Just around the corner.

Protection 

The start ledge has belay bolts.

There are 4 bolts under the roof and one on the vertical face.

There is a fresh 1/2 x 8 glue-in for bolt #2.

Two bolt anchor before the next ledge.

Short but sweet! Extending the last draw and skipping the second to last bolt worked best for me. I found the second to last clip awkward to get to.
