Description 

Of the main part of the Oven, this is the rightmost bolted climb of the crowded bolt section that consists of Half Baked (5.10a), Undercooked (5.11b), and their continuations. Walk into the pit known as the oven, and it's the route that moves straight up right on front of you on the right side. A waterstreak on the grey the crux block also makes this route stand out about 35 feet off the ground.

Climb up gently overhung blocks using mostly large hands and all the fun grainy basalt smearage you can handle. A fun crux section awaits after six bolts in the grey waterstained block where the large hold sits visibly just out of reach. After the crux climbing resumes back to mostly large holds to the top anchor, where a final intersting move brings you to the coldshuts.


Protection 

11 bolts to a 2 cold shut anchor that's seem better days.
