Description 

Don't get burnt as you pass 3 bolts with a long reach to a pocket by bolt 2 (this may be height-dependent and harder for short people) and the thin crux at bolt 3 to reach a big ledge. After the ledge, continue up bolt-protected steep face climbing, none as difficult as below.

Would be more classic except for the big ledge you can take a nap on in the middle of the climb.

Location 

Up high and right on the Winter Wall, just right of Protein Supplement.

Protection 

7 bolts to a 2 bolt anchor. A 60m rope is fine to lower.

This route was established by some combination of Mark Thomas, Tom Wezwick, Karl Kiser, and Chris Kessler, all of whom worked together on several routes at Diablo and in particular on the Winter Wall.

Notably stiffer than Protein Supplement, consistent with Beverly's rating of 5.10+ vs. 5.10a for PS.
