Description 

Climb the face right of "First Strike" to an arete, then over the roof right of a prow to join the ""First Strike" at the last bolt. Climbing directly to the first bolt can be sketchy, but it is easy to pre-clip by coming in from the left. This is shown as "A Sheep in Wolf's Clothing (5.12a)" in William Prehm's photo topo.


Protection 

Six bolts to a rap anchor (shared with "First Strike").

Felt kinda contrived up at the top. Interesting movement and a hard pull over the roof puts you using some of the top holds of first strike....

Really fun, balancy moves down low on this route. The crux is a big right hand move to a ledge near the bolt above the roof. I'd give it 4 stars, but the rock is pretty bad down low unfortunately....
