A small ledge offers a rest before crux of small edges to pinch and pockets. Perfect rock and moves.
It is 100 feet past F***in' Greenies on the next good wall. Please do not climb crack in center of wall as this is where the wild hops grow, and we like to use them for brewing. Who doesn't like a good homebrew?
5 glue-in Fixe bolts to anchors.

Very cool climb! The rock is immaculate and the climbing is really engaging and fun. Since you asked, I did indeed send it (second go, couldn't pull off the OS). I think I met Alex at El Rito, NM, a few weekends ago and he mentioned this route. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. Congrats on finding such a great line.

This is such a cool & fun climb. Neat, thin, tecky moves through the crux and good endurance to finish the 5.11-5.1o climbing to the chains. I almost took a mega whipper trying to clip the anchors!!!!
