Left of Bannana Crack is a face with two bolts. That first bolt is way up there but the crimps on the zenoliths are good. Get ready for thin, balancy climbing. Belay from the top from natural gear.

Fun, thin climbing. Partner had about a 3" reach on me and basically got to skip all the parts i thought were hardest, excuses excuses. Jump start to the rock chunk, its cool. Oh yeah, i wouldn't recommend falling before the first bolt. Probably no serious injuries would result, but a badly sprained ankle is a definite possible as the landing is slanted.
