This route moves from one scooping flake to another scooping in the opposite direction, looks interesting, yields some fun moves, however it is not photogenic :(
Fun moves up to crux which is a little bit weird, especially if you go too far right(route sucks you that way)
Good route for a warm up.
This route is also good for the beginner looking for their first 5.10, it is fun the moves need to be sussed and it has a clear crux.
Left route on the boulder between Triple Corners and Waimea.
4 bolts to anchor.

Maybe I got all messed up on this route but I found it akward and hard for the grade, then again it was about 25 degrees out.

Got on this thing the other day it was surprisingly fun, thankful for the hero hold at the top it is always a welcome find!

I got on this route years ago, used bad Beta, and thought it was way sandbag at 10a. Then, today. my buddy 'demoed' the route for me and sure enough, with the right Beta, the route is really only 10a. :)
1.5 stars from me.

I feel the same as the comments above. When you get to the crux the direction you go determines everything.
If you are careful in the crux area and really feel out where you can go it truly is a 10a. Don't be distracted by the chalk and find your own way. If the moves feel harder than the grade, find better ones. :)

FAed by the three man team of Scott Stevenson, Ted Hammond and Alan Cattabriga.
It is short, but has fun, tricky climbing for the grade. one and a half stars
