Description 

Inflation starts just left of Market Meltdown on the left-side of the cliff. It is the fourth route on the right when looking left to right. Climb up past the first bolt using devious holds. Follow the line of bolts up a short corner to below a steep-imposing headwall. Make a series of hard moves (crux) up the headwall to the anchor. Great climb on excellent rock.


Protection 

10 bolts lead to a 2-bolt anchor.

Inflation is certainly worth two stars and may be the best line on the wall. The route climbed at 5.9/5.10 up to a balancy no hands rest before the final steep head wall. A powerful push with the right sets up a long reach to jugs that just get better on the right. Still hard right to the point where the angle breaks just below the anchor. We swam way out right and then jogged back left to make the finish 5.9. I watched Mark flash this line by really sussing out the crux from the rest stance (the move is very reversible). Inflation is a fine line on largely excellent stone with good pro throughout and comes highly recommended.
