An interesting climb with interesting moves- mostly thin edges and cobbles. A move leftward toward the arete at mid-height seemed to be the crux.
This climb is all about slipping or not slipping, so chalk up and climb it cold. I was in distress chalk-less and in the hot sun. Perhaps my assigned grade reflects that.
The route could be lead all sport (no trad gear) and still only get a grade of 5.11a/5.9(S).
This climb is just up the hill from the Northern Dinosaur Egg, which is to say, it is at the lowest south-facing wall on the West side of Der Freischutz. It is the left of two bolted faces which share a disgustingly 'hot pink' sling on the anchor at the moment.... Thankfully it is out of view from almost anywhere by the summit of the N. Dino Egg, and hopefully the sun will fade it fast. The 80s were not kind to me and this triggered bad memories.
3 bolts and a few stoppers or TCUs for the easier top.
