Classic Begoon line. Great, sustained hard moves. After you pull out of the slot cave to the left it's harder if you go straight up and slightly right then if you stay more left. The big ledge is a nice rest before the bolts, but it does not let up in the bolted section.
Ends at a two-bolt anchor. Justin Day put up the line that continues up from this anchor, though it's a bit of a squeeze job.

|Sketchy pro placement behind a flake(could pull) while stemming right off the ground. After you get around the flake the gear and bolts are good. I remember this route being pumpy. Go all the way to the anchors past the tree.|

This is full meal deal the entire way. Pulling the initial flake isn't the bad.
The route stays on you through the first half of the route, pulling pumpy moves until you reach the transition ledge.
Steel yourself for some sporty crimps.
All in all a great line with lots of variety.
