Bo Earle leading Frank-Presley.
This route is the middle of the three bolted routes on the left side of the country. It is definitely a one move wonder with the crux coming around the 2nd or 3rd bolt.

The route is a great first pitch for Kite Flying Blind. The belay at the end of the pitch is directly below KFB, and the climbing from the belay is fun bolt-protected face climbing that leads up directly into KFB.
The first bolt is a little high up, particularly considering the elevated start. It is helpful to put a nut or cam in the crack before the first bolt. The crux is just after the second bolt - the rest of the pitch is fun ~10a continuous face climbing.
