Description 

Start on a chossy slab, best to traverse in from the right to clip the first bolt to miss some of the worst rock. Continue up past the second and third bolt. Whenever the holds die out utilize the arete passing the fourth bolt. Catch a nice (slightly awkward rest) clip the 5th bolt out left (bolt was placed here to provide a cleaner fall) and head right to a hueco and traverse left to the next bolt. Slightly harder if done direct.

Continue up easy ground for a few more bolts to the final overhang and anchors. Leaver biners would be nice here as there isn't much of a stance for cleaning.

New route and still has some loose rock. Should get better as the rock cleans up.


Location 

Leftmost route at Captain Hook's Grotto. Easy to spot as the first 2 bolts are glue-ins.


Protection 

8? Bolts to large chain anchors.

Needs some traffic but I liked it. Not just pulling and not too pumpy as you work up the feature.
