Description 

This is the next route right of Rest in Pieces. The crux is a boulder problem off the ground that can be avoided by traversing in from the left. Wander up the cobbled face to a roof. Pulling the roof is the second crux. My advice is to not clip the second bolt over the roof. If you blow the moves, it's a clean fall anyway. If you do choose to clip, this may prove to be the toughest part of the pitch.


Protection 

5 bolts to 2 bolt anchor.

I didn't find the start to be hard, nor a boulder problem. Use the two good pockets and the jug foot and give a nice little dyno to the jug ledge. Clip and go. The top was good, though.
