This along with Blackheart are located on the nice looking "3-tiered" face on the far left side of the Ken Black formation. Easily visible from the road. This is the righthand line passing a couple of bolts to a two bolt anchor/rap
Couple of cams to go with the bolts.

Decent enough climbing, but nothing special. The pro seemed adequate and doesn't merit an R rating, and the crux is lower than indicated on the beta photo.

Hard, grainy, and sequential moves around the first bolt. The R rating probably comes from the opportunity to place some really small gear in an overlap, right about the height you could deck from. There is pro available in the horizontal break (1.5" cam and a big nut?) before the second bolt. In-obvious
moves at the second bolt are pretty hard and grainy. Place some more pro in the next horizontal (1" - 2") and then share the anchor with Blackheart. I TR'd it.
Note: This route has only two bolts, not 3 as shown in the old Stackhouse beta photo.

Sorry about the topo inaccuracies. I usually, at a minimum, get the bolts right. I'll go back and edit this one. Thanks Russ
