"The Thin Line."


Move up through the low crux using small edges and pockets. The climbing eases a bit as you move through the 3rd and 4th bolts. On the way to the 5th bolt, climb up a sandy trough on low angle but slippery terrain. The finishing slab is low angle as well but also has its fair share of loose sand.


This is the second route south (left) of Just Happens.


5 bolts, 2 bolt anchor with rings.

Fun, fun climb all the way up! Pretty cool feature and great that there are holds to follow the line all the way.
