Description 

An older line, originally lead on gear? Now bolted. The true start is a two bolt version up a right facing flake to gain the dihedral above. Another option (easier) is to clip the first two bolts of Elmo's fish. Continue up and right in the fun dihedral as it steepens and pockets pulling becomes the order of the day. Fun climbing, and possibly 10a with the flake start.

Location 

To the right of Elmo's Fish, to the left of Sun Spot (11d) and Harvest Moon (11a), on the left side of the Killer Cave.

Protection 

9 bolts (flake start) or 8 bolts (Elmo's start) to anchors.

Did this on our first trip to Sinks in July 2013. Got a nice easement day on the weather and climbed comfortably all day! Check the acute weather before writing off this place in the summer due to general heat.

I'd call this a great testpiece at the grade to solidify your leader skill at this sport level. Relative to the other climbs on the wall, it goes on forever and has several steeper parts.
