This route is the right-most line on the Love Nest formation and starts in a shallow corner and then finishes on the face above.
A steep start on large but somewhat loose holds leads into a shallow, right-facing patina corner with the crux moves exiting onto the tan face above. The finish appears desperate but reach high enough and a hidden hold will magically appear.
The easiest of the Love Nest routes, this is a good warm-up for the adjacent lines if need be. Complex moves on good rock make this a fun route and merit it three out of five stars.

Quite a fun route. The first bolt makes it look like there is a direct start - much more difficult this way, climb in from the right on big holds. Definitely a worthy route but not quite as good as something like Jane's Addiction or Bebop Tango.
