Description 

Starts off with a tough boulder problem through the first 18 feet. After finishing the boulder problem the route eases up a bit but keeps you on your toes with 12a climbing for the next 40 feet.

Like most route at turtle wall this is an excellent route.

Location 

Route is just right of the "project" it is the left/south most route (with chalk) on the main face before turning the corner towards The Actual Parchments.

Protection 

5 bolts to chains.

This route is more of a hard v6 boulder problem for 15 or so feet followed by 5.11-ish climbing to the chains. The bottom has a powerful undercling crux with high awkward feet (if I'm remembering correctly) to small pockets and sloper crimps. Once you finish the boulder problem, it's like 5.11 climbing with some good rests and interesting, sometimes sandy holds.
