Description 

Follow the first four bolts up the wall, trending right after the 4th to a good rest. Commit back left into the flake, complete a fun, crimpy crux problem up to good ledges and a reasonable finish.


Location 

This route follows the line of bolts left of Fantastic Voyage (based on the info that FV starts with two cold shuts).


Protection 

9 bolts. Finishes on 2 fat Metolius bolts shared with Fantastic Voyage.

This route is fun, but I think it is closer to 11.d than 11.b, maybe some holds have broken, but at least not in the last year.
