Starts off of the ledge on a vertical face. Big holds lead up to a crux crimpy reach right at the third bolt. Gain the arete and after a few moves, a good rest at a "hueco" like hold. A technical traverse left, leads to more good holds up to the base of the curving arete. Continuously tricky climbing follows the arete as it curves left to the final mantle to the chains.
11 bolts to chains (that's right you have to untie and feed)

A lot of good climbing and a hard crux. Loses a star because the crux feels a little contrived -- there is much easier ground to the left.

The shining bolts caught my eye when I was at the Warmup Wall and I had to come see what it was. :) I agree that the "crux crimp out right at third bolt" is not right. Nice route nonetheless.

hooks added to chains and 10a start added right of original start which bypasses one 5.11 crux. it's still probably 11c.

With the new start I would give it 11b for the climbing but a difficult clip up high makes it harder so maybe 11c.
The climbing is 3 stars but the crux for me was clipping a bolt up high. So overall I would give the route 2 stars as is. There was a chalk dot placed already where the bolt should be so maybe fixing it is in the works? Or somebody else had the same frustration clipping as me?
