Cushions from the base of the climb
A series of moves up a crack system. Odd rock formation, do a move, rest on the large ledge, do another move, rest on the next big ledge, repeat. Climb is easily protectable with nuts and cams, every bolt is within inches of a great placement.
Crux comes at the top (second to last bolt), the crack is difficult, but if you reach around you can find some good crimps off to the side to work with.
Located on the ledge above Tennis Ball, walk up like you would walk up to set up the top-ropes, but then climb the series of cracks going up.
6 bolts (including the anchor chain at the bottom) and 2 anchors/chains at the top. Can also be done with a standard small-medium trad rack.
Great day, great climb!

Oh, and if you're one of the people constantly covering the crimp at the top in chalk, please stop. I know you like to have tick marks so you know where to go, but you don't need to fill your hand and completely cover 6 inches around the hold.
