Description 

The start is the same as Early Bird Special. Climb up to the first bolt on Early Bird Special then move right to the second bolt. Fire straight up on fairly good holds to the crux around the fourth bolt. Power past the fifth bolt and reach a two-bolt anchor. Good route and wonderful face climbing. Should clean up with more ascents.

Protection 

Five clips will get you to a two bolt anchor.

This will be a decent climb when the lichen is cleared. I had to do a couple of big highstep moves to get to good feet because smearing on the lichen wasn't feasible.

A steep and challenging climb. The direct line past the fourth and fifth bolts looked harder than 11a with very few positive holds. My partners and I traversed a bit left here to some better holds and moved back right up higher.
