Start the same as Simians to the Sun, but about halfway up bust right at the roof and then go up to the belay of Simians. This has been said to be a little run out.

This route has steep moves on good rock with some interesting gear between good bolts. Makes a good direct start to Watch Crystal Crack or Simians.

Agree that linking this into the Watch Crystal Crack makes for a stellar pitch.

I wonder why Kozak "bombed" this route...?

The movement is similar and the climbing is as fun as Apes, Durangotan, Crime and Punishment, etc. Just a few pieces of gear recommended and otherwise enjoyable bolted climbing.
