Description 

This easy face climb starts on the east side of The Egg sharing the first bolt with Egg Face. After clipping the first bolt, traverse right and up a few moves to second bolt. A long runout from here to the top over easy ground could be intimidating for a beginner leader. A ground fall for sure if you fall just prior to clipping final anchor!

Protection 

Two bolts to one-bolt anchor.

There are now three bolts to a solid two bolt anchor. Fun, easy climb. Good warm up or novice route.
