Possibly the biggest holds you'll fall off of...


Left most route on the head wall and right of the climb up the black streak (Chocolate Chicken Pot Pie 5.10). Clip the first three (or two bolts if you'd like) on the head wall approach pitch, then veer left onto the face. Pull the continuous overhang to the chain anchors.


12 bolts. 2 chain anchors have courtesy biners.

The two bolts off of the big ledge require long draws. These two bolts have been moved from the previous location but this section will still require runners off of the ledge. There's not a good way around this.
