An ok route, but the bolt at the crux would be better located if it was to the right a bit. At its current location, you are looking at swinging fall into a slight offset. Probably wouldn't kill you but probably not fun either.
Given the bolt location, I thought it went straight up, but the holds run out and you end up looking at a bulging, smooth mantel well above the bolt. Ended up down climbing and going to the right in a fairly pumped state, which felt kind of exciting for some reason.
