This route shares the first 4 bolts with Cranium Crack, then moves left into a short crux section which culminates in a set of lie-back moves guarding the anchors.

I thought the crux was 1/2 up when it goes vertical. Several tiny crimps and finger pockets in between bolts usually mean 5.10 moves, not 5.9. You will be pumped when done. Great route.

I agree with Dreez on the 5.10a rating, the sequence of moves going to the anchor are committing and leave you very pumped!
