This is a mixed climb on the left side of the slab. Slab up past bolts placing cams in the runout sections. Finish at an anchor.

This is a nice and long route for the area with an awkward crux at the top. I think the anchor is just two hangers. Topping out is possible.

great vision for a route on Syd's part, a couple thought prevoking moves and a showstopper for the grade. Reminiscent of the top-out moves for George Hurley's "raise the roof".
