One of the better routes at the Pond!
Start by stemming over to the first bolt, then proceed up through a few increasingly difficult sections to the technical crux deadpoint. Get a good shake and blast up the route's second half, which is comprised of fun jugs on solid red rock.
There is still a bit of loose rock on the arete at the bottom near the 3rd and 4th bolts that should probably be cleaned off, since it is right above the belayer.
It is possible to set up a TR on this climb-- there's a bolt a few feet above the anchors to which one can clip a long runner so that you can safely climb down to the anchor hooks.
The prominent slightly overhanging long face at the lower pond, just to the left of a gully. #80 in the Karabin guide.
10 quickdraws, hooks at the top.
