An overhanging and sustained pitch with a crux dyno at the top.

Start on a platform just left of Flying Machines. Climb overhanging rock up and right to a pillar, continue up difficult rock, and launch into the final crux dyno just below the anchor.


5 bolts to a 2-bolt anchor.

I believe that this route is manufactured. The obviously manufactured hold to the left of the last bolt can be skipped, which makes the route slightly more difficult. I cannot tell if one of the lower holds has been enhanced, but due to all the other manufactured holds on this wall I would think so.

I would have to disagree. I don't actually know what hold you are referring to left of the last bolt, but none of the holds seem manufactured to me. I dynoed straight up, maybe a little rightish, from the jug just below the last bolt.
Getting to the crimp by bolt 2 was very reachy, at 5'6" - ape +1, I had to use some bad sidepulls and a little bounce. My taller friend could keep his hand on the low rail.
The route to the left however...looked like several enhanced holds.
