On the ledge before the upper crux

Description 

This is the second route from the left when facing the Indian Wall.

P1 5.10c Start up the steep slab clipping the first and second bolt.The crux is encountered at the second bolt passing a small overlap/flake. Continue on up the slab on nice sustained friciton passing several bolts to gain a ledge. After the ledge continue up through on another nice crux using pockets underclings and nice edges to a two bolt anchor.

P2 Continue on up the slab past several bolts to a belay tree.

Continue up a Sand Dunes, walk off, or rappel.

I gave this route three stars because I thought it was a super nice friction face route.


Protection 

This climb is well protected by bolts.
