Crimp up a face, then delicate moves over an almost-featureless slab to a roof. Pull the roof and you're practically at the anchors.


just left of Six Toes


4 bolts, anchors

As of 10-24-2009 the anchors at the top of this climb have also been chopped. Not sure when or why. Maybe the cold shuts were worn out?

Well bolted. Safe falls, just a couple balancing moves as you get your feet high and step into the corner.
