To the right of The Well Balanced Owl, start upon a flake leaning on the cliff. Follow line of diagonal bolts up and to the right. Pull the bulge and move up and left to the anchor.


14 bolts, long draws to reduce rope drag

After clipping the 7th bolt down climb and unclip the 6th bolt. The 6th bolt is the one that give most of the rope drag.
