Description 

This route is just right of Einstein's Bike and left of Cactus Garden. Pull easy 5.7 moves to the first bolt (cam optional), clip the first bolt and then fire the lower crux. Make sure your belayer is on it when leading from the 1st to the 2nd bolt as there is a ledge below. Once you fire the lower moves right around the 1st bolt, moving to the 2nd bolt is not bad. After the 2nd, continue on easier but slightly run-out terrain to a horizontal crack. Many climbers go right at the last bolt to stand on a ledge, but avoid it as it's off route and you might have trouble getting back onroute. The crux is the last 10' of the route and involves a fun backstep on a killer crack. Most belayers clip into the chains on the ground while belaying.

Protection 

Mixed. Four bolts. Bring single rack up to 2". If you're confident at the grade, it can be done solely on bolts at 5.10a (PG-13).
