Stemming out to clip the second bolt on Hangman's ...
The difficult portion of this climb is right at the start between the 1st and 2nd bolts with some interesting footwork. The climb follows a ramp up and right, then traverses back to the left to a V slot.
Five (5) bolt protection. Two bolt anchor.

Fun route. The third bolt has been moved to a location that negates the necessity of supplemental gear on this route. The old SDCC guide mentioned a #4 TCU being necessary. The placement is still there if you want it, but the route is not runout or dangerous without it.

Great Climb! The start moves on this may be 10a-ish if you are under 5.5. All finishing variations on this climb are good, but if you are going to set up a top rope it may be easiest to head straight up to the Obverse the Gap anchors past the last bolt. This, with a directional on the second bolt, makes for an awesome(low swing) TR. Enjoy!

It was a hard start for me being 5'7. I was able to follow the rail to the right and up into the larger holds and to the ledge for a quick break. After that it was smooth sailing to complete the onsight. Pretty stoked and a fun climb. 5.10 moves at the bottom are what make the climb!

Haven't finished this one free, yet. The start is a bit scary. 1st bolt almost useless for safety. The second bolt is a tad high and at the crux of the climb.

Tightened first bolt. Successful onsite lead. Felt like a deck potential clipping the third bolt. I didn't see where the original 3rd bolt was...must have been nasty.
