This one starts on thin but easy holds on the right side of the lesser wall, below a big bush growing out of a seam. Climb up past a seam to the left of the bush, to the horizontal. Finish up and left to the anchor. Climbing to the horizontal felt easier than 5.7; the crux is getting from the horizontal to the anchor and feels harder than 5.7, possibly as hard as the crux move on Cookie Monster. Walk to the left or right, then descend the easy chimney to the base.


TR, bolted anchor
