Description

This route starts the same ramp as Centerfold and goes left after about 12 feet. Follow 5 bolts up through three overlaps of rock and onto the blank face right of Kermits Wad. Climb through micro-senquencial friction moves to gain the green face above. The small holds on the green face will seem like ledges once you reach them, and join with the last bolt of Kermits Wad. Follow the ramp to the anchor.

Protection

Six total bolts. Five new bolts (drilled on lead, by hand drill/ hammer) Bolt six is shared with "kermits wad" as are the anchors. Bolt 5 was drilled AFTER the first ascent. It was added later the same day to make the climb safer.

Drilled on lead? Nice.
Great route. Like Kermit's w/crux b4 green area--just a hell of a lot harder. Perfect bolt placement. Sep 11, 2008

Man, What a line!! Kudos to the Anonymous Coward that created this route. Between bolt 3 and 4 is the crux. Don't try to clip bolt 4 too early or else... The smallest of chickenheads are there to help you out. Sep 11, 2004

 
Haven't climbed it, but heard it's a great climb with well placed bolts.
