Though the book doesn't list a name, this climb is easily recognizable by the right facing bulge halfway up the face. Bring long slings (30' or so) when setting toprope to minimize rope drag. There are three sets of bolts on west side of Pothole Dome. Use the left most set for anchoring this climb.

3 out of 5 stars fun warmup

Only a couple 5.6 moves just above the bulge, the rest is much easier as long as you avoid the glacier polished areas which as slippery.
