Great route, short but pumpy and fun. One of the best in the area.

Yep - agree with the above. Great little route, nice mix of thug and technical movement. Going for a redpoint burn next time, took a whipper at the crux today. Kind of a pain to clean and I would recommend a good, alert belayer.

After clipping into the 3rd bolt, be very conscious of where you're going to swing as you move left. A large rock at your back poses a very serious ass-busting hazard once you make it a few feet out.

GREAT CLIMB; however, how do I do it without cheating?

The first time, after the 3rd bolt, I went up and over the ridge; jug-hauling as I went up. I know that's not right right way, but at around the 4th/5th bolt, it seems like you need to get off the face and use the ridge.

Great route! I liked how it followed an aesthetic line rather then going straight up.
