Description 

Left-center route. Balancy start to techy face climbing with optional crack assist. Traverse right at finish to the central shared anchor. Edit to add: this climb now has an independent anchor for lead climbers.

Location 

Starts at a right-leaning seam to a face with a crack on your right. This route is actually two routes to the right of Route #3 since a route (Xeno Dance)was added in between them. Using the crack makes it easier. Shares the obvious anchor with routes 5 and 6.

Protection 

6 bolts + anchor. Optional #2 in the crack below the anchor.

This route feels scary than the others because there was way more lichen on it than other so my feet felt way sketchier. But its got plenty of bolts so it just made it a little harder and made me be more careful.

An independent anchor for lead-climbers was added to the face at the top of this route after repeated disputes and confusion over the shared anchor on busier days.
