Good warm up climb.

Description 

Work your way past an awkward slick (and often wet) spot (crux), then up easier rock on large holds to the anchors.

A nice warm-up and immensely popular. Get there early on a nice weekend.

Location 

The middle of three bolted routes on the face just right and slightly upslope from the large shelter cave (Narcissus Cave). Look for a wet or stained spot about 15 feet up.

Protection 

6 bolts + 2-bolt anchor.
