Description:

Cliff's best and most protected line. Begin on the same narrow ledge, just right of CHRONIC BEDWETTER. Smear and friction up the steep slab past numerous bolts to a two-bolt anchor 70' up. Then either rap or continue on easy slab climbing to the top.

4 out of 5 stars Reality Check

Friction! Pretty thin on the bottom. Route finding is key to this because it is easy to go left after the eigth (?) bolt because the ninth is hard to see from your climbing vantage point. Runout at the top.
