Most people TR this line after climbing the harder Scream Cheese. The first bolt is way up there. A small nut can be placed before the first bolt. After the second bolt, you can place a medium hex to the left and a bunch of tiny nuts in a seam. Pull the final moves around a bulge.
Nuts, lowe balls, RPs, and hexes.

For those lead climbers who come to the bulge at the top of the climb and think that the crack out to the left looks beautiful... it is. You can easily bail out left via the "wuss variation." Oddly however, those on top rope will climb the bulge without a problem. Go figure.

Whoever bolted this is A) tall, and B) perhaps sadistic? For a 5'6" person to reach the first bolt requires perhaps 25 feet of climbing on big, positive holds... and then a mantle move. Argh! If the bolt was a foot lower a short person could reach it from positive holds. But yes, all the moves are "easy", including the direct finish.

Lead this as it was meant to be led: with 2 quickdraws and a handful of courage on your rack. A potentially spicy lead for a 5.7 leader, but for more advance leaders, this is a good mental testpiece. Direct finish on hero holds is the way to go.

The first bolt is unreachable with a stick clip. Bring some courage, or place some gear on the way up.
