Description 

This is currently the rightmost route at The Riviera. It has 3 possible starts. The first 2 add length but are a bit contrived. You can start where Infestation starts and move right in to a groove, start at a crack that angles to a spike and then up, or just below the 1st bolt. The bit around the 1st bolt is probably the brief crux. It eases to probably 5.4 terrain around the 2nd bolt. You have to force yourself a bit right at the 3rd bolt to avoid the top of Infestation.

Location 

This is right of Infestation and is currently the rightmost climb at The Riviera.

Protection 

4 bolts, possibly gear for lower starts, 2 anchor bolts with Mussy hooks shared with Infestation.

Fun, well protected, short route. Crux at the beginning was fun but not difficult. Last bolt to Mussy hooks was like climbing a stepladder. I lead it then pulled the rope left so we could toprope Infestation, which is a fun route as well. 5.6 seemed about right.
