This is the right hand route on the QOB pinnacle. The first bolt is 20ft up and can't be clipped until you do a mid 5.10 move. You can place a #1 Camalot in a pocket to the left.
There is some interesting movement, but there are number of awkward and sharp sections. The crux is near the top using arete pinches and side pulls with bad feet.

4-5 bolts, optional #1 Camalot.

Technical with multiple cruxes. Don't blow the difficult first clip, the fall would suck.

Definitely stick clipped the first bolt. Some actual climbing on less than inspiring rock to get to said bolt.

Some awkward thought provoking climbing on this one. Weird barndooring with some attempts at flagging against the air. Probably not harder than 10c but not exactly straightforward.
