Description

This is one of my favorite sport routes in Boulder Canyon and one of the pumpiest under-vertical climbs I've ever done. It's the middle route of 3 that are located about 50 yards uphill and right (up the gully) from "Bolt Cola" and "Where Eagles Dare". For me, there are several distinct cruxes, some of which are pump-induced as you get higher. It is well-protected, sustained, and on perfect rock. I might even argue that it's hard for the grade, at least on the onsight (and I'm a notorious sandbagger). If slightly slabby climbing isn't your forte, be warned: you'll find few good holds on this route.

Protection

7 bolts, I think. All you need are QDs.
