Description 

This route goes up the wall using a single bolt above. The bottom is reasonable to lead as it's not too hard, but bring a crash pad and spotter or just TR it if you're not comfortable running it out. The route follows good edges and cobbles to the bolt. The crux is found above the bolt, reaching the anchors. Going to the right of the bolt seems like the right sequence for the grade.


Protection 

One bolt to two bolt belay below the top.

I really loved this route! It felt easier to me than Emerald (5.10b) nearby.
