This is another atypical route for the Red, very thin and technical. Start by climbing up using positive small crimps to reach the 2nd bolt. From here, make use of the arete a bit and find a way to clip the 3rd bolt. From here, the crux continues... Use some very shallow holds in the center of the face to move up and gain the 4th bolt. After the 4th bolt, the climbing does ease up a bit, but it's still really thin. There's a nice long runout above the 5th bolt, but if you make it to this point, these are the best holds on the entire route. Best if you save this route for cooler temps. It's also a bit dirty, probably best if you brush it down for the send.
Continue past Samurai, 5.12b. Barbed wire is the next route that you come to located on a wavy slab section of rock.
6 bolts, shuts.
