Description 

Boulder up or Stick clip the high first bolt. From here make cool moves laybacking and underclinging flakes past the second bolt. I found either the second or third bolt to be far right and difficult to clip. Make a few more moves past the third bolt and hit a nice rest. Climb easier ground to the anchors. Around the last bolt there is alot of small loose rock.

This route seems new as there is still alot of loose rock. Beware as my partner knocked a large (20 lb) chunk off.


Location 

Between an unknown 10c slab route and Crystal Ball. Towards the upper end of the cliff, starts in a small recess behind a boulder.


Protection 

5? Bolts to anchors.

Chris and Lance bolted this and the line to the left thinking they would be good warmups and they ended up being hard so they bolted the 2 lines to the left. According to Chris they never climbed this line, so who knows if it had even been done before your ascent? Probably, but possibly only a couple of times even though it is close to 10 years old.
