Up off the block and trend right through the flake. Hang a loooong bitch sling if you don't like the runout to the anchors

Fun route and climbs up a cool section of stone. The start and first bolt are shared with Big Blue. Some tufa moves leads to a tricky undercling section, then a long ways of enjoyable steep climbing. It is probably only 11+ / 12- to here. At the crux the wall blanks out and you have to make a huge move off a good undercling hueco to a far away crimp. Stick this and continue up on steep ground with a few powerful moves and throws. The upper section will be exciting if you haven't worked the moves and there isn't a sling hanging from the anchors. At least it will be all air!
If you can stick the crux than this will probably be an easy tick. Many have massive issues with the powerful throw though.
