This excellent route starts behind the tree to the left of Action Candy. This route has a little bit of everything on it.
Start with a crimpy traverse to the left to join a short crack. Follow jams and liebacks past the first of the crux moves. A moderate slab leads to a large roof. Angle right through the roof with big moves. There is a key under cling on the right to ease passage.

Did this on our first trip to Sinks in July 2013.
As a climber who loves steep but short bouldery sections, this route was right up my alley. Tricky bouldering off the deck leads to a decent rest stance after a couple bolts (careful before this section as early groundfall potential would seem to exist). After that, some jams ease the pump a bit before more cruxy steep movements gain a satisfying finish.
