At the end, head to the anchor (Deepwater Horizon) on the right. This was bolted ground up on hooks. The crux is @ the 5th bolt.
This is just right of Nurse Shark.
A few bolts (7).
BETA PHOTO: The route. Climb up through the roofs.
Very sequential for the next few moves.

Reled this one after a large sidepull fell off. It is definitely harder since losing the hold. I also added a bolt at the end where you can now safely crimp through on some tiny but good crimps toward the anchor for Deepwater Horizons. It helped greatly to use a long draw at the 5th bolt. Classic, hard, committing, and just burly at the crux 5th bolt.

A much harder route now due to the missing sidepull pinch. I got to watch Mike Cichon climb the route last Sunday. Pretty amazing, Mike is climbing really strong! I don't think to could do it this way. Shortly after, my partner Colby Richard found a right hand sidepull that Mike or I hadn't. He managed to do this crux twice, while working the route. I am psyched to go back & try it again!

Really cool line. Next go I'm thinking. Lots of different styles of climbing with a great rest at mid-point. Not to be missed. I think the direct finish post is just a duplicate on this post? They both end on D.H. anchors? Either way! Sick action!

Fun route! Good climbing the whole way through with a variety of styles and holds. Never felt like climbing out left once above the bulge at bolt # 5/6, seems like the direct version is the natural route to the top, at least to me. Nice line.
