Summit Route , Mt. Doom

Description 

A short little route. Start off a large separate boulder onto the formation. Move up and clip a couple of bolts and then try to pull the crux on , what else , sloping holds. It may be harder than 5.10a if you chose not to use the big hole out left of the route.

Location 

The first route you encounter after coming down the access trail. This is the east face. There are three bolts and two with no hangers. From the top you can easily set up a TR for the slab route or for the west face route.

Protection 

Well Bolted despite missing hangers
