Espresso Love is a great line on the right side of the Lower Grotto, following bolts up a black streak.

Scramble up to the first bolt, get the second clipped then make tough moves left of the bulge. Blindly clip the 3rd bolt out right. Continue up easy ground to the ledge. Alien here in the flake or do a move to the jug and clip the fourth. Climb the flake right of the 4th bolt (maybe there is a kneebar to be had). Clip the 5th and traverse left under the roof. Climb up through a few more clips to the chains.


This is the next bolted line right of Wire & Fire (on the right side of Lower Grotto Wall).


Sport route with 8 bolts (if memory serves, check for yourself and/or take more). You can also get a yellow-red Alien before the 4th clip if you want.
