Description 

Follow the direction for "Philadelphia Flyer". Start 15 feet right of PF. Crank up and clip the first bolt, make cool moves to reach better holds. Clip the second bolt under the roof and climb out the roof to the third bolt. After the third bolt follow the crack to the anchor.

Good route in a cool setting.

Protection 

Three bolts and a couple of medium size pieces will get you to the anchor.

I really enjoyed this climb. Lots of great movement down low and a nice, easy topout. Bolts are spaced so that you are definitely making some moves between clips. I personally thought this was easier than Straight Outta Compton. Great views from the top. Bring some medium cams for the crack above the bolts.
