Description 

This is nearly the right-most climb on the wall, with the exception of a junky-looking blunt arete. Descend 150 meters from the parking lot to the wall and walk to a line of bolts perhaps 4 meters left of the right-hand edge of the main buttress. A line of 5 bolts leads to chains up top.

The climbing is mostly positive and is a reasonable warm up, although I found this route just a little more slick than its immediate neighbors.


Protection 

A rack of draws, plus something up top for the chain anchor.

easiest 10 on the wall and a fun one too!

This route is a bit more tricky than it's neighbor to the left (Dirtbag, 5.10a). Although the grade is the same, more thought is required here if 5.10 is near your limit.

The crux on this one was a thinker for me. After I finally made it, I was pretty pumped and very grateful for the huecos above. There's also a fun little horizontal fist jam near the top. Great route! For extra fun, try traversing right and downclimbing Sands of Blood instead of lowering.

Not the easiest 10 on the wall. Solace was easier for me.

A good climb. A little hard to be rated 10a though. i would give it more like 10c. If your looking for an easier ten get on Solace or Dirtbag.
