Another fun Iso route. Short crux. Fun moves. Well protected.

A beautiful line, runout at top, but easier going, obviously. A couple small cams would have helped. Reminded me of short version of Lady in Red in Lower Devils, though not as hard.

Very nice climb with great movement. Deserves its own set of anchors. At the very least a warning about the 30' runout to the anchors on slates day off (which happen to be quite a bit to the right) would be nice. The runout climbing is easy but a loose rock could ruin your day. I finger sized piece or two would work great.

Great line fun to climb. The runout at the top is no bid deal. Just tread softly.

Really good positive edging in a small sea of hard to see holds. Warrants a proper anchor:)

I added a bolt to get to the new anchor yesterday. It should be much safer.
