BETA PHOTO: Ark wall between Two Lefts Don't Make it Right and...

Description 

At left end of a bulge (right of blocky rock) climb to the first bolt, then follow the obvious bolt line up the open book and through a small overhang (crux), up steepening terrain to the headwall. Pull the headwall bulge to the anchor.

Location 

Just right of Two Lefts Don't Make It Right

Protection 

8(?) bolts. *
Fixed anchor.

  • It appears a bolt has been added near the bottom, and the route does not appear to have any signficant runout or ledge fall so dropped the PG13 protection grade indicated in ADK Rock Second Edition page 63.

Of the moderates here, I thought this was the most varied and sustained (5.5 with a couple 5.7 moves). Classic Gunks roof move at the top.
