This climb protects with a varied rack, but bring 2-4 black aliens for the bottom section (small wires might also help).
If you are not psyched to lead the thin crack at the bottom, you can TR this climb by finishing Run Like Hell and then swinging/traversing over to the top of Wish You Were Here and climbing the last 20'. Just make sure to place some directionals.
Fun, thin balancy climbing with lots of face holds. Didn't seem 5.11 to me, especially compared to the 5.11 cracks here.

|Placed two awesome nuts on this fun and interesting route. Be sure to watch the end of your ropes if using a 60m, as it just reaches the ground.|

|Techy climbing above thin gear leads to the upper crack. The bottom was definitely a bit scary for me. It is a trade off between protection and finger locks. The bolt up high is somewhat unnecessary, it would be better to have it down low. May advice would be to bring a clip stick. A very long clip stick ;-)|
