Thrutch up the wide gap formed by the big boulder to get on top of that boulder. Clip the bolt, then get up onto the face. Veer right and up to gain the higher crack. Fun and exciting step-up onto that face.

Descent Options:

Traverse to climber's left across the backside and go up short handcrack to get to bolted rap anchor atop Leaping Leaner.

5 out of 5 stars awesome

Thought this was a blast -- the lower boulder section is pretty chill with a touch of offwidth technique. The crux moves around the bolt were definitely no gimme, but protection-wise I thought it was fine.

2 out of 5 stars bailed

Bailed from the lead, not wanting to risk a fall onto the boulder from the moves getting into the crack. On TR, I discovered that they weren't bad after all, but better to bail than to be broken. Cruised on TR.

Did the start statically each time with a low right foot on the face, then a high step to the big slopey foot.

Scratched and clawed, this climb was hard. Need to try again when stronger.
