Description 

Begin on the left side of the west face and climb somewhat loose flakes and lumpy face past two hangerless bolts to a large, left-facing flake below the third bolt. Work your way past this (5.10), via some funky moves, clip the fourth bolt and then make the thin, balancy and somewhat improbable crux moves up and right to the end of the hard climbing. Easier moves lead past a final bolt to the top.

Great moves and position on this one, unfortunately the rock quality isn't the best and the climb is over all too quickly. Having hangers on the first two bolts would be a welcome improvement; in the meantime cinch a wired stopper over the bolts. Two stars out of five.

Protection 

5 bolts, anchors (all 3/8")
