An unfortunately typical Smoke Bluffs bolted slab. The holds are excruciatingly small and polished. This climb feels really hard for the grade, even admitting that a slab 11a should have very small holds. It's likely that the edges have lost a bit of their bite over time, as appears to have happened on a number of Smoke Bluffs slabs (Dreams of Passion at Ronin's Corner and especially Tools of Moss Destruction at Fern Gully).
Nevertheless, all of the moves are doable and a top-rope session can serve as an early-season tune-up for your slab technique.
This is face just right of Davey Jones' Locker.
There are two bolts before the first ledge, one before the next ledge and then one more on the finishing arete of Diddly Squat. There is a two-bolt anchor shared with Diddly Squat at the top.
