This is a classic line with amazing movement. Only drawback is the length, fairly short, even for the area, technical start, moves into some bouldery laybacks with a crimpy finish. Should be "Inflatable Forearms"

The homemade hanger (stainless?) has caused serious galvanic corrosion on the carbon steal bolts. There's also a bolt without a hanger at the top, although there's a very rusty bolt 3 feet below it, if that's worth anything.

Overall this is a amazing climb, if I could only link all the moves...
