Description 

I love slab. I love this route. One really key foot is just below the first bolt, I found it was easier to do a single biner rather than a draw in order to hit it. Once you pull the bulge, go up Despreado. You can go over left to lower it a few letter grades.


Protection 

TR from the anchors for Diamond (note multiple anchors . . .) or use the 3 bolt lead.

.10C variation left of the Bulge...Fantastic thin friction with buttery, stretchy moves....makes the 5.8-5.9 face climbing above the Bulge seem like 5.2.

Some seriously finger hurting thin smearing. Trust that left foot!
