|Road Cut, The
The furthest left climb on the road cut, Escargot climbs up a pocketed face facing north, then after reaching a ledge, you climb up an east facing face with fewer features.
6 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor, use a sling on the 3rd bolt to reduce rope drag. Carville's book doesn't mention the first 3 bolts, but they're there.You could probably use cam placements in the numerous pockets to protect yourself as well.

Kind of a rules problem according to Paul (RIP, bro). Stay on the arete and out of the left crack at top for the full value...

Funky pocket climbing on granite. Pity about the ledge at the midway point.
