near the anchor
This route is in the central/left part of the Stems and Seeds area. It is the 2nd crack to the right of the fairly obvious Seven Virgins and a Mule (5.7) chimney. An excellent handcrack with some faceholds that provide very nice stances for placing pro. It gets a little wide at the very top. This is the route to climb if you want to toprope Red M&Ms.
Standard trad rack, mostly in the handcrack size with one bigger piece for the top (3" is good). There is a bolted anchor at the top that is shared with Red M&Ms.

This route is a lot harder than Air Guitar. It's just a lot more pumpy.

This and Air Guitar are both great routes, must do's, and very similar. I could see them being .10's if you didn't have such a nice rest right before the wide end cruxes...You can plug a #4 from the rest and pretty much eliminate crux commitment too.

One of the best .10a's at the Coulee.
Jughaul cruise with a few jams up to the short OW section. Route is very clean.
I personally didnt find the bulk of this route harder than air guitar except for the short OW (4" cam useful) section on George and Martha is Harder than the End of Air Guitar.

A lot of jugs ease the steep crack climbing on this one.
