This route starts on the far left prow of the Knobby Wall via white rock and black knobs. After ascending a few blocks at the base to access the wall, toss big, aiming for the 4 hole (crux 1; drilled?). Stick clip first bolt. Now, traverse left and up the right side of the arête, before breaking back right and to the 3rd, crux bolt. One bolt anchor can be poorly backed up with Keep the Muscle Loose the Fat 13b. Short and powerful.
