Located on the "Surprising Crag - South Face". Find this route by locating the obvious laybakcing flake above a little roof. This route is the route to the left of this flake. Start by either clipping a bolt 6 feet off the ground over a small roof, or climb to the ledge and traverse left to clip the 2nd of 6 bolts. Continue on easy ground to the 4th bolt and locate a small undercling and shallow right hand pocket. Crank through the undercling with small feet to reach the lip and climb to the anchors. A nice 2 move crux on a smooth slab.
6 bolts - 2 bolt anchor.
ABS starting the crux.

Good climb, hard crux. I thought this route was a little harder than the roof/layback to the right of it......little more thought provoking and also hard not to bail out to the right or left to easier terrain. Fun climb, I would say the crux move is .11d

Definitely a hard move due to the nearly non-existent feet. Big moves at the crux and strong fingers are a must. Very easy before and after that though.
