The subtle, but sustained over hang of ferocious

Description 

Just right of Vomit are two steep lines. The left of these is Ferocious.
The intended start seems to be an obvious rail hold that isn't as good as you would like. But we found a good way to do it using a great sidepull-undercling hold to the left and just over head high. Once you get past the second bolt the holds are all really good and it is just a matter of enduring.
The ending does hold one last challenge for you, so save something if you can. Really fun line...

Protection 

6 bolts and chains. The first bolt is low and to the right and doesn't help much and the second is twisted sideways.

Awesome climb, I don't really think there is a specific crux, it's just very sustained for how short it is, but excellent climbing to be had up here boys!
