This route is situated between Lavender Eye and Green Goblin. Starts as a steep jug haul and moves to vertical climbing before the finishing crux at the top. Very pumpy for a 5.9. Good route. 7 bolts I believe.

The lower half of the climb is very similar to Green Goblin. The crux move through the roof appears a little intimidating at first but the holds are there and using a drop knee makes the move much easier than just pulling straight through.

This is a 10a, and is now said to be in the new HCR book.

Just a sustainable endurance route, but without anything that just stands out. Should have stayed 5.9+ in the book, seeing as how it's 1/3 the same style as Green Goblin to the right of it with no noticeable crux.
