This is a newer bolted line from 2012? near the nadir of Pulpit Rock. It is fun and a nice route to add a bit of mileage at the beginning or end of your day up there.
It starts as for Vegetative State, clipping its first 3 bolts. Then it goes straight up with the crux section starting as you clip the 4th bolt (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13). Pay attention to your left foot holds, as that seems to be the crux. This has some nice stem positions for clipping. The difficulties ease of at the top, and you can bring a small Alien or TCU to protect the very top, if you like close protection. Currently, the anchor bolts have 2 locking biners which make for a bit of rope tightness on the lower.
BTW, Jay felt it could be 10+, so there could be any easier sequence than I found...or maybe he's just a hardman.
This is the rightmost bolt line at the nadir of Pulpit Rock. It shares a start with Vegetative Estate.
6 bolts (which seem to have been removed as of 5/14/13), optional smallish Alien/TCU, 2 bolt anchor (which seems to have been removed as of 5/14/13).
