Gina Bararra on Wait Until Dark

Description 

This face climb lies on the left margin of the west face of Grotto Rock. Climb face and a large loose flake to the first bolt. Above, a single hard move on solid patina leads to easier climbing on buckets past 2 more bolts to the top. A 2 bolt anchor is located about 6 feet back from the edge.

Despite the intial loose holds, it is worth doing. Descend by downclimbing the center of the upper east face to a ledge; then head right (south) and down a corner/flare to the right end of the west face.

Protection 

3 bolts, 2 bolt anchor (downclimb).
