Description:

Start down low and pull the overhanging bulge to get up to the first bolt, then up the slabby face, slanting right toward the top to the shared anchor. 5.8 or so if traversing in from the right to get to the first bolt, going straight past first bolt rather than right guide book says 5.9. Located on the Lizard Head, which is actually the northwest face of Motherlode.

Descent Options:

Rap.

2 out of 5 stars fun

anchor might be a bit high for some, guess crux is at the bottom as guidebook mentions. Did the 5.9 variation at the bottom not going right.

setting anchor may be challenging for some, stay left at bottom of route to make it harder.
