Description 

Bouldery moves off the ground lead to a bolt and then a horizontal crack. Traverse the crack onto the arete and move up via right sidepulls and left fantasy-friction grips, past another bolt to a notch breaking an overhang. Step right into the notch or layback the thing up its left side (notch offers gear but is awkward, layback is uberscary but easier). Continue up the crack system to security at the oak tree of your choice.
Incredibly sequency, pumpy, and exposed.


Location 

On the steep face 10' right of the blocks and left-facing corner that lead up to the big right-facing dihedral (aka Winchester Dihedral) at the right end of the huge roof system. There's a bolt 15' up.


Protection 

Standard Trad Rack; definitely bring C3s, and possibly doubles of fat finger size.
