A wierd route that has an odd traverse. A more direct finish (or start for that matter) would appear to be more logical.

Great warm-up climb! Easy slab climbing to a tricky high-step and traverse to a crux move out of the scoop to the anchors.

Super fun route...I don't understand why some think it is weird. It follows the natural weaknesses...And the traverse is the best part!
