Description 

Begin from boulders on the far right side of the great southwest face slab, up and left from the start of Perverts in Power. Climb 4th class up and right on a low-angle slab that steepens, with a few harder (5.8 R) friction moves leading up to the first bolt. Climb steeper face past 2 more bolts (5.10c) then cruise up easier slab climbing past 2 more bolts (5.7) to a small flake (2 to 3 inch pro). Continue up the slab to a belay ledge (2 to 3 inch gear anchor).

Descent: Walk left on the ledge for about 50 feet to a 2-bolt anchor. Rap 150 feet.


Protection 

Pro: 5 bolts and double CDs from 2 to 3 inches.

The "R" rating is a warning for the unprotected moves (5.8 friction) just below the first bolt.
