Description 

The belay ledge sits up a ways from the water so this can be done under any wave conditions. Cool steep start on good holds, but slippery. After the bulge you will not be able to communicate with your belayer so have a plan and a communication method (such as rope tugs) sorted out ahead of time. See all the sights as you pass embedded seashells, small caves and a section of wall that looks like dirt, but is solid and sharp. The crux is thin and sharp with an ultra prickly porcupine finish, rounding out a rather mediocre climb that mostly gets three stars for the fantastic sightseeing on the way up.


Location 

Left of Freedom by 25 ft (which has a tag) when looking at the water. 85 ft. left of the very NE point (What's the Point?). Find the small red ledge just below the cliff edge, just right of the big bush. At the shared belay of Renegade, head left (facing wall).


Protection 

12 TITANIUM bolts with two more at the anchor, two at the belay.
