A good sequence of moves off hidden sidepulls just past the 3rd bolt is the crux and highlight of this route.

What a great little climb in an off the beaten path location. Solid rock up high and kind of reminded me of the rock at White Cliffs of dover up high and red rocks down low. Crux move at third bolt is faith based. Can't really tell how it's going to go when you commit but it is all there.
