Description 

Pitch 1: Step up off a boulder and work you way up until the first bolt. A #3 cam protects the moves to get there. Will your way past the first couple of bolts or take the whip. Climbing is pretty thin and tricky through this section but the bolts are pretty close together. The climbing gets a bit easier as you continue past bolt 3 and 4. A #2 cam protects between 4 and 5. All hardware is beautiful and new! (Thanks Nate/ASCA?).

Pitch 2: Continues up a water groove past a couple of bolts to anchors at the top. (We didn't do this pitch it was running the day we climbed).

Location 

Right of Campfire Girls...starts of a boulder. Left of Scars...

Protection 

5 bolts, anchors, medium cams.

Guidebook calls this 10b...yeah right. I would call it 11 something for sure but I don't know. And pretty sustained climbing until bolt 3.
