BETA PHOTO: Felsic stays just right of the dike

Description 

Roughly follows a left leaning dike up the face. Shares the first 4 bolts with "Cheetos and Everclear". Sustained at the 5.8/5.9 level. Mostly small knobs, some friction, and a couple of hand crack moves.

Location 

Starts on a ledge about 70 feet above the ground just left of "Holdless Horror". Can be accessed up the "Holdless Horror" gulley, or to the left up a seam and crack/flake. Two 70m ropes will get you to the ground, two 60m ropes will get you to the 3rd class slab/seam 20 feet off the ground

Protection 

11 draws. Two bolts with chains. Optional small hand sized cam can be placed in the crack half way up where the bolts are a "little" wider spaced. 1-2" cams for the belay at the ledge.

Great climbing and protection! A little easier than Gold Member maybe?

Fun climb,knobs, edges, and a little smearing with a couple crack moves in the middle (1-1.5"). Not sport bolted but also not R.
