This route is deserving of a better description:
One of the few, if only, routes where you get to pull on two finger pockets.
Begin with a 30ft section of chossy, but somehow solid, rock to get to the first bolt...you can place a number 3 along the way if you're worried about this. From this first bolt, you begin a 3 bolt section of pockets and slopey edges that lead to a dead point to a good iron-patina'd jug. You will clip both the 3rd and 4th (normally a long sling) from this rest. Side pulls and very technical feet will lead you into the meat of the route that begins with a very hard clip however you decide to clip it. No rest and you launch into the crux with small crimps, knee scums and very unfamiliar body positions that ends with a final jump move to the anchor clipping hold.
This route is always dry minus the first 15 feet that takes you to the ledge...
