Just right of Red Light District. This pumpy climb will tire you out quicker than you think. It is very consistent, and doesn't allow much resting. You might find a stance to rest just before the second roof (Between bolts 3 and 4).
5 draws for the climb and 2 more for the anchors (Chains)

Mama mia what a sustained route! Bring your best boulder moves, yoga flexibility and muscle endurance. This line had me dripping sweat, even on a cool, cloudy day. No fluff at all in Ruckman's .10d label. I rate it a touch harder, given its relentless nature.

From the first bolt to the last, this route stays tough. It has that S-curve down sloping hold thing going on. It feels 10.d all the way up and, because it is so sustained, seems WAY harder than the 10.d next to it.

Good route, and will give you a solid pump on it.
Bolts are in good condition on this route.

Fun route that starts tough and doesn't let up until right below the chains. I thought this was a little harder than Black Monday (11a) on the same wall, but maybe I was just having a bad day. On the crux, I went right which seemed to be the way most people go, but my friend went left which looked a little easier. Not sure if that is the intended route though.

^ i agree this was harder than Black Monday, probably just due to the sustained nature seeing as Black Monday felt like 11a for only the 3 bolts on the over hang. The intended route also kind of escapes me on this climb.
