Description 

This route is the last on the left by the large boulder. Stay to the left of the bolt line. The hardest moves are definitely just going over the hump to get the anchors. Really positive hand holds on some sharp rock.

Protection 

You need 3 QDs and something for the anchors at the top. If you are going to TR it you should use two longer slings.

I believe the name of this route is Thieving Bitch.

Listed as "Seething" Bitch in the Front Range Topropes book, and as "Thieving" Bitch in the new Gillett guide. The latter is probably correct, but doesn't the former sound much cooler? ;-)

The first three bolts are definitely 5.8, but the final 10 feet to the anchors is much harder... could even be 10+ or 11. Moving WAY left might make it easier, but staying anywhere close to the third bolt makes the climb a lot tougher than 8.

Moving past the 3rd bolt is definitely the crux. There is a crimp out right for the right hand, and then step up to find a perfectly placed flat with the left hand, after which going for the bolts is pretty straightforward.

The anchors are loose but not scarily so.
