An atmospheric traverse. Unfortunately the boulder beach has dropped and the start is not possible at the present time.</br>1) 6c, 15m. Climb the pocketed wall above the roof, then traverse left along the lip to a hanging stance near the arete.</br>2) 6c, 15m. Continue traversing left around the arete, then trend upwards to a large square block.

Where is this route supposed to start?
The weakness in the roof 10ft (ish) to the R of the first visible bolt seems rather hard for what is supposed to be
to be part of a 6a as well... Zawn is escapable to the L looking out at VD ish.

Boulder beach has dropped about 6ft over the years, making the start to this and Beach Madness bold and difficult. Need another bolt, and a grade re-appraisal.
