Description 

This is an interesting climb. I feel like this could be lumped into the "warm-up for The Orifice" category. I found it a bit harder than Mandatory Doug Testing. The climbing is also a little less straight forward which makes for more interesting climbing.


Location 

Just left of Kundalini Express, which shares the start with Mandatory Doug Testing.


Protection 

Bolts to sport anchor

Luke, I'm not picturing where this climb is exactly. Kundalini is left of MDT and shares a start with MDT. So where is the new route relative to Kundalini ?

This route is between 'Forever In Bluejeans' and 'Kundalini Express'. The route intersects two left leaning cracks.

I would have preferred another bolt between bolts 5 and 6 but then again I'm a sissy. I resorted to aiding this section to put up the route and continued to come off here on TR.

Fun route.

Don't Kundalini and MDT share a start? Murray Freestone is the 1st independent route left of MDT.

Then it would make more sense to say "it's to the left of Kundalini".

Anyway... it's clear now.
