Awesome route that I think is worthy of a few stars (it gets none in Cater's new guide). Really nice corner climbing and finger locks. Sustained, but with nice stances.
Slightly dirty, with good spider potential, but very high-quality.


Locate the major offwidth corner Smooth Operator. Walk to the right and it's the next corner you come to.


A 4" piece protects the roof pull nicely. Otherwise, mostly thin. Bolts on top under roof.

Save this route for someday when you are looking for a nice gear line that stays dry in the rain. Good route.
