This popular line sees a lot of action on busy weekends. A difficult boulder problem off the ground leads to a set of three pods at the first bolt that look a lot better than they are. From here, traverse right past the 2nd bolt to good jugs, then straight up for 6 feet to the 3rd bolt and good jugs. At this point "Heat Stroke Straight Up" veers leftish, and this route breaks hard to the right, traversing out the juggy rail. At the 4th bolt the route starts going up again. After clipping the 5th bolt, the holds become increasingly slopey, and the feet seem to disappear. Apparently there is some slick palming beta that makes this section easier, but without it, its desparate, and you'll be psyched when you get the 6th bolt clipped.
From the anchor for Heat Stroke its possible to set up TRs on Sun Burn and Cinco Trinta. If you want to TR Heat Stroke, be sure to leave all the draws in place for your second.
Begins immediately left of the obvious flake/crack feature that splits the wall.
