Great mixed route with two interesting cruxes. Very featured. You will need to put plenty of gear in before you get to the first bolt, and also between the two bolts. I'll post a picture soon.

A very nice line. The bolts are placed perfectly thru what I found to be both cruxes. Warm up on Daddy and jump on it!

You are definitely above your gear pulling thin crux moves getting to that first bolt. It's got that committing South Platte flavor. Don't blow the clip!
