Begin from a gully about 50 ft. up and left from Blues Traveller (5.10d) and climb a low angle slab past 1 bolt (5.5) to a steep headwall (3 bolts, 11+) then easier (.9) steep face up and left past 5 more bolts to the top of the formation. 2 bolt rap. 100 ft.
9 bolts. 2 bolt rap anchor 100 ft.
A #1 camalot is useful before the 2nd bolt.

Distinct crux, sustained climbing from 2nd bolt to last. 3 of 5 stars. The only "change" I'd suggest to this climb would be to lower the top anchor by 20 feet or so (or maybe just double the last bolt and leave top anchor). This would permit a lower off rather than rapping (100+ foot rap) as there is currently too much drag on the rope to effectively lower or run a TR from the ground.

Well bolted crux leads to easier, fun, Josh style friction. Didn't place the optional cam.

Good route. Worthwhile. Didn't clip the last 5 bolts.
