This route is immediately left of Pre Op. Some bouldery moves down low lead to easier climbing up high. The route trends slightly left and is kinda contrived at the top (could easily share an anchor with Post Op).


8 bolts or so.

Another great route, IMO. Bouldery crux through the first two bolts. It's slightly easier after that but far from over. Sustained climbing of a thoughtful nature on great rock before a "sporty" set of face moves above the fifth bolt.
