This is an old project on the far left side of the Project Wall (where everyone urinates pre-redpoint) that got cleaned up a bit and sent. It climbs a grey-and-white-streaked face to a big bulge to a bit of blue stone above, and is back behind the trees.
Climb the vertical face on sidepulls and crimps to a first-set of anchors (given 11d, feels harder). Lower off, or continue right into the bulge and a gymnastic crux sequence on slopers that takes you to a good little brick, then layaways, above the bulge. The 13c rating assumes you do both pitches as one, without weighting the first set of anchors. Bring a good heel-toe hooking shoe.

The new guide lists the climbing to the first set of anchors as 11c but it is rather dirty and uninspiring in its present condition.
