Just Basking 5.11d ** 80' F (11b)
Listed in the guide as a variation of Ready To Strike. Climbs a direct line on the right wall of the corner, stepping right after the first 2 bolts of Ready to Strike. Follow the bolts through the progressively harder moves (small mantle) to the high crux (hard if you stay left at the top and avoid the arete on the right). Chain anchors on top. Lots of bolts, good rock, consistent interesting moves.
FA 10/16/96 - Interesting well protected climbing (11 bolts), on good rock (southern exposure), with a few lower moves past questionable flakes. Progressively harder moves (starts with the 5.9 corner, then step right onto the face after the first roof) up the face in a direct line to the technical 11d finish - which is what we did on the first ascent (its substantially easier if you use the right arete - thus the 11b grade in the guidebook). Chain anchors on top make for a fun top rope climb (25m).
