Located to the right of Amazing Face following the bolt ladder to a two bolt anchor with chains. The start is the crux and often an old bolt hole is used although not necessary. Look carefully to find holds. Gets a bit easier higher up until you reach the last bolt with a tough move or two to gain the anchor chains. Be careful of a flake that seems loose right below the chains. Great technical face climbing.

Protection 12 quickdraws for lead (watch out for loose bolt up high, number 10 I think), or rap down from amazing face anchors to chains for top rope.

Ethic: inherited from Boy Scout Rocks

Use long slings and ropes to ensure your top rope extends over the lip of your route. No more rope groves are needed! Don't climb a few days after rain due to the fact that you will break holds when the rock is wet and be sure to climb softly as some holds are delicate!
