Description 

Really fun route with a distinct crux and a few hard moves at the top to keep you on your toes. Climb up the easy ramp for 1.5 bolts then get on the face. You can go left or right of the bolt line, though it looks like most go right. If you go right, traverse left at the bulge at what should feel like the first difficult moves with the goal of gaining a right hand 45 degree crimp and a left hand pocket. Pick your feet wisely to make the big reach to the sloper (crux) and then clip. Don't worry about the fall - it's clean. Gain the undercling for a quick shake then tackle the technical moves in the black limestone above.

Location 

Very left side of the wall. Shares the first 5 bolts with Gabba the Nut that splits to the right. Belay at an awkward stance in the sand.

Protection 

9 bolts and anchors

Bolt #6 on this route is in bad shape. Sticking out ~1/4 inch, and quite rusty....

You may want to, dare I say, pass over this route for the time being...
