Description 

This line follows the obvious crack-like feature up the center of the cream colored wall (with cream colored hangers). The climbing is very sequential on cool, slender pockets with the occasional fingerlock thrown in. The fourth bolt is a little hard to clip off of a slopey right hand mono/stack. Just set your feet, take a breath, and clip.... it's not too bad, many people fall on the thin moves after the clip.
Great route that starts hard and stays on you for the first 5 bolts. The top is easier, but can be pumpy.

Protection 

8 bolts, open cold shut anchors

Very sustained thru the first 5 bolts.
