In my opinion one of the best 5.10s at HVP. An excellent athletic exercise on steep rock with good flakes. There's a tricky little bit at about half-height, but save some strength for the crux finishing moves.
Middle of the face of the left formation and between Long Arm of The Law and Stake Your Claim.
Being an early route a tad more runout than usual; 5 bolts, sport anchor.

When I climbed this in the mid 90's I seem to remember it being called "Bucket Loader" - any history on this Chris M?

Bucket Loader was the name given in the Oso Grande guidebook due to the name and FA being unknown at the time.
Clipping the anchors off the hidden jug behind the anchors is around 5.10c but clipping the anchors from below without actually going over the bulge is more like 5.10a.

Entirely agree the crux of this climb is getting yours hands over the lip to clip the anchors.

The jug above the anchors is a blind hold for shorter climbers. Use the side pull to the right of the anchors as an intermediary before going up for the jug.
