This climb is a jug haul. Big huge holds that you can get both hands on. It is a great first lead for somebody. I believe it's five bolts to chains. The crux comes on the last move. You step out from a ledge onto a face and pull onto another ledge.


Once you get to Populace Wall it is to the right about two climbs.


Quickdraws or you can lead it on gear. You will need bigger cams #4-5 to do it.

I gave this a "PG-13" safety rating because the area between 3rd and 4th bolt is a bit hairy if you fall, lots to get hurt on. Leaning out the the 4th clip is a bit shaky if you're a bit challenged in the length of reach category. It looks like someone moved the 4th bolt about 1-2 feet to the right, away from where you are standing on a small ledge. This is great for rope drag, but since you're only 4-5 feet below the anchors, it would be better to have the bolt back left. No problem though, just be calm in clipping.
