The route...

Description 

This simulating route starts with crux face moves off the ground, which is typical for this wall. There is a low bolt to protect the crux, but a .75 camalot is nice to have ready for the upper crack. Follow the now moderate finger crack to the well protected patina face climbing above. A .3 camalot in an undercling will protect the runout between bolts. A fun outing...

Location 

The third route from the left. It starts in one of the few vertical finger cracks on this wall.

Protection 

Gear to .75 cam with medium to large nuts

This is a superb route. A tough move off the deck leads to a slightly easier crack and technical face climbing above. Stays 5.10 and keeps your attention the whole way up.

Getting past the bolt is height dependant. 10+ for those over 5'10" The quickly backs off to mid 10 for a ways. Maybe a few more 10 moves here and there.
