Description 

Between the bolted face on the left side of the slab and the chimeny on the right there is a moderate climb up the face which finishes just left of the chimney. Although nearly always top-roped, it can be led by clipping the first bolt, slotting a small nut into a diagonal crack, placing a small cam in a vertical crack left of the chimney, and placing an iffy medium-sized cam into a hueco to protect the crux move at the top. Climbing straight up the steep face with thin holds just a few feet right of the bolted route is much more difficult, perhaps 5.10d.

Protection 

1 quick draw for a bolt, several small nuts and several medium cams
