Description 

from the left of the trunk and the eye, move up over a small overhang on small incut holds, protect with thin nuts (read:rps work best) and trend left slightly and commit to thin face moves to a rest and more thin nuts on your right in a small flare. Move straight up on moderate ground following horizontal cracks past a final well protected overlap to the top and mixed gear and bolt anchor...nice job!!!!


Protection 

small nuts and cams along with a normal rack to #2
