Description 

This route starts out just to the left of the left facing gully/corner at pulse wall's apex. Start out with a couple of bad crimps and pull up and left to a better hold (seeps), clip and gain the better jug above (left side is best). Get a high foot and get the side pull and transfer over to the undercling-ish solid stance(taxing). Grab the upper crimp with your left hand and right out above the overhang, get left hand into dish above the corner(hidden hold). Pull the mantle on those bad holds, don't look down, there is no exposure but your bolt is a little farther down than you would like(b careful to clear your heels). Stand up and clip the anchors.

Location 

Upper section of cliff 2nd to last climb.

Protection 

Well-bolted.

Mike,
This would be a great climb if it is at your limit, the holds are all there and the clips aren't bad. It is also easy to work out.

Where is this taxing undercling? I didn't use one undercling on the entire route and it felt great.

Yeah, no underclings for me either. Incredible moves all the way through which get even better at the top. 3 stars only for length, but flawless rock quality and super cool movements make this one worth the extra little hike. My favorite short sport route.

The hardest move for me is being able to hold on to that final left-hand crimp while I shoot my right hand up from the great side-pull to the crappy rounded stuff on the lip at the top. Wicked hard.
