Description 

Another good climb on Left Flank, the difficulty of which is inversely proportional to your finger strength, as crux of this climb is on steep rock and smaller pockets. Fire through the steep first half and then cruise the easy second half to the anchors.

Location 

On the right hand side of left flank, just to the right of a "notch" in the wall. There are 3 routes fairly close together above a big shelf-like boulder. This one is the left-most of the three.

Protection 

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

First two bolts are where the meat of this route is...third is a tiny bit pumpy but the route is pretty much done once you pull the overhang. Such a beautiful sequence down low though. Really cool mono lock off pull right below the first clip I recommend stick clipping the first bolt.

5.9+(?) ish after the second bolt. This was my first 5.11 outdoors, and I stick clipped the second. Not sure if you can call it a send, but it was still a blast.
