Description 

Heat Sensitive has a little bit of everything. To get to the first bolt requires an extremely powerful undercling move and highstep with the left foot. Clipping the first bolt is not such a problem and can be reached from the right hand undercling/sidepull, but the second bolt if missed (you clip off some fairly small chips) could end in a bad fall. I used a single carabiner on the first bolt.

From here the climbing only gets better. Fun, technical moves lead you to a dynamic finish. The only reason for the pg-13 rating is because of the start. The rest of the route is protected nicely. The rock is solid and this climb should definitely be done more often.
