Description 

This is just right of Chips and Salsa.

Climb 8 bolts to a 40' gear finish. Start up the slab and step right. Climb past 8 bolts toward the obvious, rightward-leaning flake. Stay just right of the large corner filled with bat/rat guano. Mostly thin gear leads up to the 2-bolt anchor on the left side of the dihedral.

Protection 

8 bolts to a 40' gear finish. Thin gear to 3/4". A 70 meter rope is required!

Continuously interesting, with good pro, great rock, and some surprising holds. A handful of finger to thin hand cams are all you need to supplement the bolts.
