Starting at an arete, climb the face passed 3 distinct overhangs. The climbing is steep, but never too sustained.


Located on the face right of the central tower

The large sidepull/sloper just above the third overhang is loose and about to blow. The moves can be done without it at about the same difficulty.

The bolting on this one is confounding. The sixth bolt (I believe) is in a position such that if you blew it there, you would bounce off of a slab. Seventh bolt is quite difficult to clip as well. Moving the sixth bolt 2' higher in the overhanging dihedral would negate the bad fall potential. In addition, one of the bolts (can't recall which) is placed in such a way that the carabiner would be weighted over an edge in the event of a fall. Be solid at the grade. Very fun movement, but don't blow it up there...
