Description 

This climb starts off a large boulder leaned against the wall. It ascends near a black water streak. Most of the holds are small edges and crystals. The crux is in the lower half of the climb. Just starting onto the wall seemed about 10a in difficulty.

Location 

This route is on the south face of Mega Dome and it is to the left of El Bosco. There is a project with 5 bolts to the left.

Protection 

8 bolts to a coldshut anchor on top. You may want a piece of gear to protect getting onto the large boulder at the start.
