Description 

Climb a large flake that leans against the main face. From the top of the flake, two old bolts can be seen to your left. Traverse left a bit and clip the second bolt. The rest of the bolts are relatively new and of good quality. I felt the crux was getting on top of the "tooth" to the right of the first new bolt. Once that is surmounted, continue pretty much straight up. There is a bit of a runout getting to the anchors after the last bolt; however, it's fairly easy. This is a route I'll do again.

Location 

This route is located about fifty feet to the right of Eff Four.

Protection 

7 bolts, bolted anchor/rap

Climbed on 3/3/13. The upper face (after 3rd or 4th bolt) climbs on and around some big and loose flakes. The bolts are on solid rock but the flakes are hard to avoid. Try to belay from sheltered position... these big flakes can break off easily.
