Description 

Start from the top of the middle block at the left end of the wall and head up the heavily featured wall to an anchor over the roof of a small cave-like rest hole. Stopping here keeps the grade at 5.11c and makes for a good warm-up, but the two-bolt extension is amazing and full-value. Pull over the roof and pinch, stem, and straddle up the long, overhanging tufa. Two bolts protect this thirty-foot section of rock that demands both power and precision.

Protection 

15 draws. A 70m rope is needed to lower from the top anchor, otherwise lower twice.
