Placing first C4 10' up.

Description 

The crux is actually the first 2 moves, as you can either attempt a layback, stay on the very slick face with your feet, or try to stay inside the crack all-together. Follow the crack until it ends, and face climb to the 2 rappel bolts.

Location 

Left of the center of the wall

Protection 

You'll need cams up the 4" for the crack, and the face isn't very exposed.
