Description 

The climb starts on a steeper face on small but good holds, and offers pretty sustained 5.10 climbing. A fun route, adding more intermediate climbing to an otherwise difficult area.

Facing Shipwreck Wall, climb the second furthest-right bolt line.

It's possible to confuse this route with Peg Leg (5.9) if you're using the 2002 Bay Area Rock guidebook. At the time of the guidebook's publication this route did not yet exist. The confusion arises as it is the only other short bolted route on the wall.


Protection 

5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I disagree with Jared. This offers sustained traversy climbing for the first 3 bolts. After you get up to the outcrop on the right, climbing is simple. Groundfall is possible after the first bolt.

I have to comment on the suggested grade.10b. I believe the f.a on this route gave it a solid 10c and if your short ( like myself) 10d.my 2 centswhipp
