Description 

Climb rejected radar up to first right angling crack then traverse left past a couple bolts on face to base of the overhanging groove pitch of monster groove direct. I Have done all the moves but have not redpointed and it will go free at 5.12b. It's an open project so "fame and glory" awaits the person who frees it.

Though this is only a small variation with about 60 feet of new climbing it is significant because it will make for the 2nd easiest all free route (after defective sonar) that goes entirely up the steep parts of Laurel between Forbidden fruit and Fathom.


Protection 

Lots of cams including a #5 camalot.
2 or 3 bolts, I forget.

I did bolt it appropriately for both leader and follower, but there is a lot of traversing and some (though likely safe) swing potential for the follower. So both leader and follower should be confident climbers.
