Fun overhanging jug climbing. Once you pull out the steepest section on the route the holds get a little smaller and a few are deviously hiding right in front of your face.
This is the first route past "Mask of the Red Death" on the same cliff.
If you are using STL II you will see that this is a "Sport" route by the (B,C) at the end of the route description. The first bolt is roughly 20 feet off the ground. The second is at about the 35 foot mark. I would hardly call that sport. A .3 camalot works nicly in between or a small nut. Good bolt protection from there to the chains. It is also worth noting that it can be dicey getting to the first bolt as the Aspen fire swept right at the base of this cliff and the granite is exfoliating making some footholds temporary.

This is a fun little climb, with a bit of pump, and several tricky moves up higher.
As noted the description this is a pretty serious endeavor as sport climb if you max out at 5.10a The first bolt is quite high, and a little tricky to clip. Blowing the second clip, which although easy, would result very unpleasant auger into the earths surface at high speeds, culminating with an evacuation and lots of hospital bills.
