Mind Bender left, Golden Book Right corner

Right facing corner / left of Golden Book.
Fixed gear missing, large cams to protect the roof.

I think the route is much better when started in the corner just to the left of the slab, but the way above is how the route is presented in guidebooks.

good lead. Roof protects with #4 BD. Follow the crack from left to right as it changes corners to start. Dont waste your time with the slab start.
