Sarah at the anchors to the unknown overhanging 5....

Description 

Stewart Green's excellent guidebook gives this unknown climb a 5.11 rating. My daughter tried it and believes it is much harder than 5.11. The protection is good, but there is not much to work with on the overhanging section above the obvious hold at the 3rd bolt. It is a tough climb.

Location 

This is a short climb up a blunt, overhanging prow about 25 feet right of the wavy slab containing Sunkist and Cleavage.

Protection 

5 bolts to a two-bolt anchor.

Thanks, Ben. My daughter would agree with you -- I changed the rating on the climb, and I will look for your new guidebook.
