Close To the Edge

Steep face and slab climbing with postive and sharp edges throughout. A bit reachy in spots and will test your footwork and some unconventional body English.
The third bolt may seem far away, but there is a comfortable clipping stance, and the fall is long but safe. The climbing and angle will ease off once you pass this bolt. Ends at two bolt anchor on the traversing ledge of P1 of South Face Direct.
Looks like this route could be a pretty cool start to Corinthian Vine.
The obvious, three bolt route left of Boot Lead, and twenty feet right of Gill Crack.
3 bolts. 2 bolt anchor.

Short but fun. It felt more like 12c to me and took a few burns to send. I thought the real trick of the route was getting past the 1st bolt!!! The rest seemed more straightforward to me... nice on a cool, winter day.
