First Ascent: Erik Kloeker, Sean Strawmyer in 2021
Length: 32ft
Bolts: 4 (report bad bolts/anchors)

Starts on the ledge above ED and BG. Choose your own adventure: clip the bolts to climb as an extension of BG or plug some pro to climb as an extension of ED. Primarily easier moves until a high crux pulling the bulge to get to the anchors. Sport climbers will find the crux much easier if they ask their trad buddies how to hand jam first. The anchors look high from the ground, but a 60m rope is still plenty regardless of which route you're extending.
Moves: Crimps, plates
Descent: Bolted anchors
Stays Dry: Does not stay dry
Owner: Muir Valley

Fun extension, and even more fun to belay from the pedestal... Following the path of least resistance makes it easier.
