Description 

A slightly overhanging face with big moves between big features leads to a tricky mantle or a reach to thin holds. This crux is at the last bolt, just before the angle eases considerably for an easy runout to the anchor.

A devious traverse right, up, then back left, also works at the crux, substituting 10 easier (5.10) moves for 1 hard (5.11) move, but some might think this is cheating, because you go near an old 1/4" bolt (which may be from a mixed route(?), that probably goes up the steep crack right of the modern bolted line, then passes this bolt, and either joins this finish, or finishes to the right?).


Location 

Inner Sanctum is the first bolted route you come to on the LEFT side, after you enter the Alley.
It is across from the Unnamed bolted 5.11 with the black hangers.


Protection 

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor
