Shattered Dreams, quite a creepy and beautiful lin...
Start the climb directly (or by coming in from the right by liebacking up a block) and then climb the vertical zig-zag crack via liebacking, face climbing and even some jamming to a tricky scrunch move (crux) at the last bolt to finish on a ledge with anchors. Note: the use of long draws on bolts 4 and 5 is advised to keep the rope away from the sharp edge of the crack.
The route features moderate, big-hold climbing for most of it's length and despite the somewhat awkward crux at the top makes an excellent warm-up for the more difficult routes nearby. Also, be aware that the "Pigeon Hotel" (located between bolts #5 and #6) is currently open for business - so plan accordingly.
This is a bolted version of the lower portion of Unexpected Difficulties
, and is easily identified by the jagged crack system as well as the "cookies + milk" graffiti at the base; just left of this is Peter Principle
7 bolts, chain anchors

A good steep climb with a distinctive crux. The lower section of the climb is pure fun on jugs. The middle section is a little awkward, but the last part is definitely tricky.

Great route. Your hand jams may reach into inner crimps or jugs. Going higher you can get a leg or shin in. Note that while executing these moves, you might loosen some rock towards belayer.
Also note, that at the crux there's a very chalked up jug that is loose.
