David Merin on the last route of the day.

Description 

Start is the same as West Face route but heads left at the horizontal. The crux is at the two bolts in the headwall. Good pro with a little spice after the two bolts.


Location 

Same start as West Face Route which starts in a small corner crack system in the middle of the narrow west face.


Protection 

Two bolts standard rack of single pieces.

Fun and pumpy line. Gear is good, bring a light rack and save a .75 inch cam for the horizontal after the two bolts and before the last. The climbing is insanely easy, but the rock is somewhat suspect (I blew off a golf ball sized foothold today)and it would be a long ride.
