A newer route, still some loose rock on this one. From the big split tree hop up on the rock and head right-ish up the slab past a few good huecos and some awkward moves. The route steepens considerably towards the top to a decent finish.
From the entrance/chopping block area, traverse left under the roof and squeeze past the big split tree. Start right there in a small space between some rocks. The right-most of the four routes on the face.
Five or six bolts to open shuts

My first outdoor lead. Good everything to last bolt, then a less-than-solid move to the right, then a big mantle on to the tiny shelf that is the end of the route.

Anyone know what's up with the anchor on this route? I was here in October 2014 and climbed it, and there was a nice 2-bolt anchor at the top that looked to be in fine shape. As of this morning (Jan. 1, 2015) there's a single bolt with a rap ring, and the holes where the previous bolts were are plugged with epoxy. I moved right onto the anchor for...whatever the next line right is, but that made for some interesting cleaning on rappel afterwards.
