Again, hard at the bottom and easier as you go up. A bit of a runout on slab at the top, but just keep it together and you'll be fine.

2nd from the left


Protection

This route makes a fine warm up for the harder routes on the Wall of Confusion. There are two bolts next to each other about 15 ft from the top of the route, skip these, and continue up an easy slab to the chains. A stick clip for the first bolt is a good idea on this one, as it is a way up there.
