Description 

A single locker is useful to clip the 1st bolt. A powerful sustained section of climbing leads to the 2nd bolt. After clipping it, enjoy one of the coolest faces at Sam's. Remeber to angle up and left after the last bolt. This route is considered height dependent and opinions of difficuly range from 11a through 11d. At 5'9", I think 11c.


Location 

This is the line up the long, steep orange face between 2 dihedrals.


Protection 

4 bolts, slings for chickenheads, 2 bolt rap anchor.
