Thin, but positive moves lead up 7 bolts to a layback. Chain anchor at the top. Bring a blue or yellow sized TCU for the top part unless you want to run it out as the bolts stop a good ways below the anchor.

7 bolts to the anchor. Bring a yellow and/or blue TCU for the upper section unless you feel like running it out

A must do at the grade for Vantage, more interesting then some other jug hauls. could use a couple of aliens for upper crux.

Great route! FA Dave Morales. He onsighted this on first ascent, with gear and then onsighted the neighbor route Red M n M's.

Awesome route. Did without any TCUs, which was a bit scary. The fall would have been quite fun. My favorite thus far at vantage. I would say the crux is around the 3-4 bolts, but getting through the mantle at the stop is though provoking as well.
