Eric forgot his rake...didn't know we'd be gardeni...

Description 

Nice blocky dihedral to the right of the unknown dihedral. Nice face moves and a short crux section. Interesting and exposed finish.

Location 

This is the far right climb. There is a smooth almost featureless wall and Salt Dawg is in the dihedral on the right.

Protection 

Bolts and some gear to 1" would be much appreciated. 2 bolt chain anchor.

Someone bolted this route but with significant run outs between bolts. If you want to climb it I would bring a rack of nuts and a 0.75, 1 and a 2 camalot. there is also what appears to be a rap anchor or an anchor to make it into a second pitch two thirds of the way up the face. Either way it needs some chain links or quicklinks to make it safe to rap off of.
