Dave McAuley starts out puckered starfish.

Description 

Climb the middle-right set of bolts on the south face. The crux is an interesting bulge move right before the second bolt. Kind of a one move wonder route, as the climbing is the easiest on the face (5.5ish) after the second bolt.


Protection 

2 bolts to a 2 bolt top anchor.

A purple (.5) BD C4 worked really well for the initial crack. The first bolt is a ways up there, so this piece is nice to have.
