Spectacular position and excellent climbing. This is the top portion of the seldom done route Slit Your Wrists (5.13b). Start on top of Skeleton Surfer. Stick clip the first bolt! Reach blindly out onto the face to find a great pocket, step across. Begin a series of funky arete moves for the first crux; considered somewhat beta-intensive. Highstep your way through the next crux and clip the anchors.
The exposed arete on the right side of Cocaine Gully.
4 bolts, 2 bolt anchor. Stick clip is a must!

I got on this yesterday and noticed that the first bolt off the ledge is fairly suspect. It spins in its hole and is quite wobbley. As it is the only bolt keeping climbers out of the chasm below, I would recommend stick clipping the second as well. Also, the last bolt on the route is missing its hanger. Although I believe falling without that bolt clipped would be clean and safe, It does make the undercling move at the top a bit exciting. Super fun route, though.
