Description 

A mantle start leads to a large ledge. Take a rest and then follow good holds up to a section of slopers. Pull through these directional holds and fight the pump to the chains. A great line that is really fun and climbs well.


Location 

Follow the stairs to the main wall. This route will be right at the end of the approach trail.


Protection 

7 bolts to Chains.

A pretty painful kneebar can be had before going to the anchors at the last bolt.

Awesome climb!
The fixed gear looks like crap in a few places, especially the crux draw and biners at the anchors.
