L to R R to L Alpha
Take this description with a grain of salt, because I only thrashed up the route in poor form on toprope. I don't normally submit route descriptions for climbs I haven't redpointed, but I did work all the moves, and feel like some description is better than none...
The fun starts (and soon ends) on pockets which disappointingly decrease in size and quality as the route steepens to slightly over vertical. Work your way up into a dishy narrow face with an arete just to the left of the bolt line, and pull (hard) on shallow mono- and 2-finger pockets with minimal feet (pop, pop, pop!). As the angle eases mid-climb, the pockets become nearly useless depressions. Finish on easier moves once you reach the horizontal seam at the last bolt (shared with "Are You Lichen It?"). Clips seem desperate.
In all fairness, I tried this route on a wicked hot summer day (though in afternoon shade) - may be more fun and less of an ass-kicker in crisp fall temps.
In the alcove, next to "Are You Lichen It?" (see that route description).
Bolts to 2 eye-bolt anchor (shared with "Are You Lichen It?," which comes in handy for rescuing draws).
