Description 

Climb slab up to left angling dihedral then over bulge. The crux is near the top and there are two ways to do it, straight over bolt or just left of the bolt. Good rock, and interesting climbing only five minutes from the road.

Location 

Walk up the road from the Green Slabs parking area at MP 9.9. Drop down into the stream bed. Walk upstream 100 feet then head to the big downed tree. Contour back right to the base of the wall.

That's a tough little bulge to pull..Took a big ole whipper from the ledge above it before reaching the next bolt..The rock on that ledge was kind of grainy and sandy still..That's my story and I'm sticking to it..

Anyway thanks for placing the bolts so I didn't smash into the sharp ass block to the left 15 feet below..And thanks to my wife for the good catch...

Any story will do from someone that is willing to fly trying. I tested that bolt twice myself Christian.

feels like 10b if you go left, 11a if you go straight up the bulge. thoughts?

It is becoming a hazy memory at this point but I think I did a backstep at the bulge after falling a couple of times and then it was not so bad.
