A short pure slab route, with its crux near the ground. Keeping right above the bolt makes this 5.7 R, but heading left after clipping keeps it around 5.6 R.


The slab area between the left-facing open book of Tyro's Test Piece to the right, and the Regular Route crack to the left.


One bolt, just before the crux - basically runout. No bolted anchors, no rap station. You can build a trad anchor over it, or walk off to the left (a couple of class 3 scrambling moves required).
