Interesting climbing on vertical patina plates gives way to a engaging sequence of thin crimps and sloping smears (crux) just past the 2nd bolt. Once the third bolt is reached a few more smears lead up and slightly left to a rounded mantle and anchors up and over the top.
Although short this is a high quality route that deserves more attention.
Just left of Out of Order, two routes left of Exhibit A and about 50' right of Tim's Valentine .
Fixed pin, 3 bolts, ring anchors

Again great short route with a small punch at the 2nd bolt. Good foot sequencing is required!
