A short pitch on its own, but of significantly more merit if continues as a direct finish to SM's Delight. The rock appears broken and rough, but the holds and protection are good.
The pitch is best done as an extension to the single pitch of SM's delight, as it lies directly in line with that climb and is consistent with most of it's climbing.


From the bolt and chain anchor atop SM's delight, this climb is the threaded cracks leaning slightly left, directly overhead.


A few small cams and stoppers protect this climb, and get you to a 2-bolt anchor (no chains to rap from) up and left, high on the slab above. To retreat without walking Rap or lower in 2 stages as for the anchors on Mosquito back down to the anchors for Mosquito or SM's Delight and re-thread. Even a single 70M won't quite get you down to the base of the lower wall from the top of this.
