Description 

This is a nice little moderate tucked away between a number of harder routes down at the far end of the Contest Wall. The line climbs a rounded prow with a short dihedral at the top.

Get established on the prow on good holds and figure out how to move into the super positive and nice flake above the second bolt. Cruise along this all-too-short flake to some more face climbing before entering the short dihedral near the top. Stem your way up the dihedral of great rock to the anchor.


Location 

The route is on the dark colored, rounded prow right of the small gully that contains Pocket Laureate. There's another route between these two lines.


Protection 

7 bolts to a two-bolt anchor with chain.

Hardly felt like a 10. Short but very fun, probably would be a good warm up.
