Up the right trending ramp to the moment of truth, very steeply up the crack to a butt ledge rest - the crux follows, a tenuous lieback to easier ground.


Two diagonal cracks form an A-Frame shape - this is the right crack.


Toprope problem (or scary lead) - boulder and cams (bolts?)

Be sure to take two hangers and nuts for the 10 mm metric bolts on top

Can be protected using some medium passive pro and BD cams up to 1. Mainly using some smaller (.3-.5) cams to protect the layback.
