Delilah climbs just left of the nice prow.

Description 

Another fun moderate featuring great stone and good moves, though unfortunately not very sustained at the grade. If the crux were at the top, this route would merit another star.

Stick clip the first bolt and make long crux pulls between great black pockets to surmount the low bulge. Above, a good crack provides easy passage to the high roof. Good, sharp holds lead over the roof to an anchor out right.

Location 

~50 feet left of "The Bread Slice" is a dark black panel of stone that juts out slightly from the main cliffline. This is the center of three bolted lines on this block, climbing the line of bolts just left of the right arete.

Protection 

~6 tan bolts to 2 BA (shared anchor with Three Doubles).
