Description 

First route on the left. Starts in less than stellar, pale colored rock. Stick clip the first bolt and then climb up some friable rock, or enter from the left via a traverse to the right. The most interesting feature and saving grace of this route is a tight lay-away after 20 ft that is accomplished with a nice series of technical switches in body position; better if you are short. Finishing this interesting sequence gains a stance on the left. The rest of the route climbs up some very slopey features on bullet proof stone. We stayed a bit left of the seam, although this section climbs nicely on very tenuous feet.

Protection 

Eight draws and a rope.

Hey again, this is the first route on the far left side with a chossy start and a first bolt that should be stick clipped because of the loose clipping holds and loose rock up to that point. The rest of the rock is great and the layback crux is good fun with some balance involved. The top of the route is dirty as with all the others and is probably the second worst route on the wall. 12b.
