Park your car off of the main canyon road.
This is a great, tightly bolted route on good rock. Crux is pulling past the third bolt, followed by cruiser climbing up alternating corners.
There is a second pitch to this route called Brainless Conformants, 5.11a.
This route is on the south face of Tower 1. Just to the right of Sinbad (Ruckman guide), which is the obvious giant left facing corner.
60 meter rope, Helmet, 12 bolts and a two bolt anchor.

A fantastic route with variety and exposure!
I agree that the crux is just after the third bolt and then the route eases up a bit, while the exposure increases.

Agree with above comment. WAY fun route -- diverse and exposed climbing. Stepping up to the anchors was wild. If you can find it, do it!

Awesome route. We did the second pitch as well which is super fun. I'm not sure why they don't mention that this is a rare two-pitch fully bolted amazing route. Super exposed and kinda scary.

Great line, fun moves with and neat bit right up the arete itself. If you do this jump on pitch 2. The second pitch is barely much harder and the its crux had 3 bolts in 8 feet right off the belay.
