Description 

This route is just to the right of Far Left Corner and climbs what appears to be blank rock from a distance but actually has many mini-ledges and crimps that provide excellent holds. Stay in the tougher section of rock, keeping the two bolts to your left. To start, move several feet right of the first bolt and climb to a good stance where the bolt can easily be clipped. From here, there is a small ledge just above you that will allow you to stand up higher and grab a much larger ledge from which to clip the second bolt. This seems to be the spot that deters many climbers even though the move is not all that committing. Step over left onto a nice sloper and reach higher for more ledges. Your right foot should end up on the first small ledge that was used for a handhold. This is the crux section and there are several options but try to climb straight up rather than moving to the easier ground that can be found on either side. The upper portion of the climb is on easy but brittle rock and has no more pro until the top anchors are clipped. Please use caution here and don't get too complacent. This is a very short but fun sport climb.

Location 

Left wall. There is a topo in front of the wall to help with identification.

Protection 

Two bolts and ring anchors at the top.
