This is the last climb to the far right, in the Agony Arch Area. It is not very spectacular, don't drive here just to climb this route.
Good intro to slab route though. Well protected, might make a good first lead climb.


5 bolts, chain anchor

Quality slab climbing on this short route that's over all too soon. Moving right after the first bolt is a little easier than staying direct.
