Description:

If leading, start in Tarzan corner to get gear in before the first bolt. Clip the first bolt and rely on delicate facework on crimpers to make the second bolt. A traverse right and up through a flake gets to the top.

I found a good 00 C3 placement after the 2nd bolt. A little unnecessary, but it was exactly where I would have wanted more pro to be for the last few moves to the anchors. Couldn't resist a hang on the 2nd bolt this time though...

tricky face climbing, thin at times, but ok protection from bolts in that area.
