Description 

Use the "Kor Start" pulling over a small bulge directly below the pin which is located 25-30 feet up on the right side of the face. Move left on the ledge until you are directly below the top anchors, then fire up thin slopers in a straight line to the top. The crux is moving off the ledge into a left sidepull and continuing past to a poor sloper.

Good body position and footwork is critical, because the holds don't give you much to work with.

With easier options available only six feet in either direction, it's difficult to tough out the moves, but the line is definitely worthwhile.


Protection 

TR. Could be an R/X lead protected solely by the pin at 30 feet.
