Description 

Another classic Begoon face route, Rock Lobster snakes up the face left of Bullet. Starting in the same right-facing corner as Bullet, head left and up via seams and flakes, placing any gear you can find. At a horizontal seam, tiptoe right to a bolt. From the bolt follow edges, flakes and slots up and then back left to a good stance beneath a hand-size mail slot. Stuff a good cam in this slot, leaving room for your fingers and then puzzle out the powerful sequence and run to the anchors

Protection 

Nuts, 000 C3 to 3 Friend/2 Camalot including a variety of microcams, 1 bolt, bolted anchor with rings.
