Description 

This neglected line is well worth doing, particularly on a hot or crowded day over at the Solar Collector. Good rock, big moves and a nice building pump and no distinct crux make this a good choice for a warmup as well.

Stick clip the first bolt, then start right of the bolt line. Positive jugs lead up and left up the steepening wall. The difficulty comes deciding which of the unchalked holds are good, as they all look the same from below.


Location 

About 100 yds right of the main Gold Coast wall is a small buttress with a vertical left face, and slightly overhanging, heavily pocketed right face. This is the furthest right bolted line of four, on the right side of the buttress.


Protection 

5 bolts, 2BA, Stick Clip recommended.
