Description 

Classic Reimers route that ascends what seems like the steepest section of the sex cave.

Starts out with easy climbing till the second bolt. Use bomber underclings to set up for a huge throw to a jug. The contrived finish ends above the last bolt in the chossy cave.

Don't blow any of the clips as you will surely deck

Location 

In the sex cave center right of lucky strikes

Protection 

four bolts and no anchors

"Don't blow any of the clips as you will surely deck", well yeah or you could "blow" them all off and bring the pads instead. Just a thought, may not apply as well to route left of this.

totally boulder-able, as long as your wife isn't watching...

As for Matthew NM, the wife not watching is just as if not more important than the pads, though, yes I would like pads as well as a spot.
