Feel like warming up for Underdog? Or for Polly Purebred? Then this is your route!
Climb the slab either starting with the flake/block to the right or directly under the 1st bolt and use the multitude of hand holds and edges and gain the bigger holds as the climb nears the anchor and the pebble covered ledge above.
Center route on the slab.
Helmet...or at least let the party above you on Peanut Man/Rap Echo know tat you are below them as there is a lot of debris.
4 bolts to anchor.

The first time I tried this I didn't see the first bolt. I started the climb on the boulder to the right and once stand over and a bit to the left from said boulder, I clipped the second bolt of the climb. The climb felt better when I tried it again starting under the first bolt. Climbing on the right like I did is a bit harder.
