Crux is between bolts 1-2. Higher sections look blank but there is actually more there.


Look for the bolts lines on the obvious slab feature to the right of Demon in my Semen.


Five bolts, plus anchors
First bolt is a little high.

The crux is at the top from the last bolt to the anchor.

I thought this route was quite good. There are good hands and moves around the bulge, with good feet if you can see them/feel for them (or just get a really high foot), then very thoughtful / technical moves up the slab up top. I found the the crux to be everything from the second to last bolt to the anchor.
