Description 

Originally a TR setup by unknown parties and locally known as "Honeycomb". Lead bolts were added later as was a different name - aka "Loopy Likes it on Top" ...

Head up the lower angle slab past 2 bolts. At the base of the headwall, clip a bolt on the face to protect you making the clip above the lip. Steep climbing up and left through SWISS CHEESE Rock leads up and right to a Crack before toping out with some face climbing.

That's an interesting video Trevor. Thank you for posting. Just a thought, but your clips seem a bit awkward. You might want to consult with a more experienced sport climber, someone at the gym, or one of the newer instructional books/videos (Chris Lindner -Sport climbing 101) to improve your clipping technique and make it smoother.

Man - I'd really like to know what's wrong or awkward with those clips. Look a-ok to me.
