Description 

This is the second bolt line from the right on the east-facing (first) section of the Left Hand Wall. The climb has a thin start past three bolts on a relatively slick face. Things get easier higher up. Overall, this is a fun and straightforward face climb.


Protection 

6 bolts with chains.

Very spicy getting to first bolt. Bad landing too, so watch out. I found this considerably harder than the 5.9 to the left. Both 5.8s and the 5.9 all get easier higher up.

A little tricky at the bottom. I found myself wishing I had a spot.

PG-13 without supplemental gear (micro cams). Ledge-fall runouts on easier but not trivial ground near the top, start is significantly harder than 5.8.

Like most of the climbs on this wall falling before the first bolt would kinda suck. Crux moves are well protected with 3 bolts, then some pretty good runouts on easier terrain. Fun climb. Added mussy hooks to chains.
