BETA PHOTO: Three hard bouldery climbs between Dust Bowl Daze ...

Description 

Another one-move wonder at Currahee. Has an interesting, well-protected move at the first bolt, then continues up through 5.5ish climbing. Has a great view from the top. I'm going with the rating in the latest (2005) Dixie Cragger's Atlas. I have been told and seen elsewhere this route is a 10c, but the crux felt more like a 10.

Location 

The start is at the left of a big ledge to the right of Dust Bowl Daze that is accessed at the gully.

Protection 

4 bolts to a two-bolt anchor. Can be top-roped by traversing from Dust Bowl Daze or By Gully.

A finger-sized cam can protect the opening moves before the first bolt. Slightly awkward getting established, so the cam is nice.
