This route climbs the shallow left facing corner to the south of the Positive Thinking face and Gamesmanship.
The entire thing felt a little cruxy and sandbagged. Many of the stances felt tenuous and gear a little difficult. It's a hard lead for a 5.8 climber.
Medium sized nuts or small cams (<.5). The anchor is bolted and you could rappel from there.
