Description 

Steep, sustained climb perched over the edge of the cave. Holds are mostly "juggish", with a crimp or two. Very consistent until you pull the roof, then you have a rest followed by easier climbing to the anchors. I am not 100% sure that it is a 12a. Perhaps some would rate it lower. I'll go with the book's rating.

Very difficult to clean. The climb lowers about 20 - 30 ft out and 10 ft or so downhill.

Location 

When facing the lower solar cave, this climb is furthest left.

Protection 

6 bolts to cold shut and biner.
