Description 

Start on a chossy, plant ridden ramp. Hike to where the ramp meets with the wall and clip the first bolt. The lower easier crux comes right after the first bolt where you pull on some suspect looking rock and onto a fine ledge. From the ledge, you can clip the second bolt. The first two bolts are shared between The Relic and Fossil Fuel.

After the ledge, trend right up just less than vertical slab with some thin moves. Maximize the difficulty by avoiding the brushy ledge to the right. The upper crux is footwork below the upper buldge where the handholds get thin. Step up to great feet and look for a hard to see bomber right sidepull above the last bolt that makes clipping at you knees a breeze. Good leavers on the chains as of 3-2-13.
