Description 

This is on the Lower Tier: Right Cliffband.

This is the bolted line to the left of Hummingbirds on Crack. The direct start to this climb hasn't been done yet and feels very hard (and a bit contrived), in the 5.12- range. If you use the crack of Hummingbirds on Crack, it's a 5.10.


Protection 

5 bolts.

OK, so it is pretty contrived for the first 3 bolts since its right next to a corner and you could stem a lot. However, if you stick to the face it is a really really good route. I'm guessing the crux start is 11d or 12a - height dependent. From the second bolt on its probably 10b ish. The start is thin and sequential while the rest is steep and usually juggy. One of the better routes at the crag, even if it is a little contrived!
