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.
