Description 

First, a disclaimer: I'm writing this description about 15 years after the first ascent. Radical Sabbatical climbs an easy-looking but difficult short wall right of the cave. At the time, it was the first and only route in that area. It can be identified by a drilled baby angle and perhaps a quarter inch bolt at the anchor. Our drill ran out of batteries, and I led the climb with two fewer bolts than it has now, and an X-rating. Bret felt bad leaving it that way, so we hand drilled the pin and an upper bolt before leaving.

Location 

Look for a drilled piton down low.

Protection 

Maybe 5 bolts.
