Description 

Climb the first four bolts of Functional Idiot to a no hands rest on a ledge. Break left here several feet to a separate line of bolts and commit to the steep wall above. A few hard moves and a lot of pumpy climbing bring you to the final headwall where the line merges back into Functional Idiot for a few holds. I looked around here and didn't see any chalk / holds for a independant line.

Clip the leftmost bolts and break left again for a decent rest before the steep wild finish past the final two bolts. The last bolt is a bit hard to clip and easily skipped. The fall would be long but nice and clean.

Location 

Shares first four bolts with the start of Functional Idiot. Between "Just Put it In" and "Zoaster Toaster".

Great route. Found it a little hard to keep this route separate from the ones on either side as they all get very close to each other. Regardless, its fun climbing. Not sure if it was intended, but I ended up sharing some holds with the route on the right in the middle since the holds die out going straight up the independent line. Pumpy last clip but I wasn't psyched to skip it on the old bolts.
