Description 

Steep start up to a couple of big moves to reach the traverse. Traverse right on good holds but with really high feet. Clipping the anchor is a bit funky. Even though the anchor hangs down below the roof rope drag on this is pretty bad if you have someone following which is really the only way to clean it because of the traversing nature.

Location 

The furthest right of the center grouping of routes. Climbs up about 20 feet, then traverses right for about 20 feet.

Protection 

Bolts and a chain anchor.

my 2 cents. Bottom starts out with really easy boulder type sequence, don't stick clip 2nd clip (I know it's temping since, if you blow it, you'll hit the boulder) but the holds are so good it ain't no thing. Cool moves on polished rock. then the traverse on slope(ish) deceiving holds with high feet. If you don't second up your belay, cleaning is a workout, expect a really big swing when you unclip that last draw (fun but probably wasn't safe). keep an eye on the bolts, they spin a lot.
