Description 

Start just left of "Hurricane Hinzi". Climb up some short corners to the first bolt. Clip the first bolt and begin a series of hard moves with some long reaches. The crux is getting past the fourth bolt and reaching the anchor. Excellent climbing on good stone. People under 5'6" might have a hard time with the reaches.


Protection 

Five bolts lead to a two-bolt anchor.

Having done this one a couple times, I think the best way to do it is to climb through the first 4 bolts (maybe clip 5th with long runner) on Hurricane Hinzi and move left into the upper section of Short Man's Burden. If I remember correctly, this is how it was first put up. Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong. Doing it this way is 2 stars - you get the fun lower bulge of HH and the fun upper section of SB.

The direct start is kind of a chosstrocity, and the climbing above can't redeem the bomb that it earns. The climbing through the first 2 bolts makes you feel kind of dirty, because you end up kind of moving to the right, instead of going straight up at 5.harder-than-12a.
