This is the right most bolted line on the South East face of Cottontail Crag and gets good sun until mid afternoon. Most people are happy with just quickdraws but other small gear is available low on the route. Make a 5.10a move passing the first bolt and cruise to the ledge at the third bolt. Things are hard from here on out with the crux coming right at the end. We graded this route a little harder originally but consensus seems to be that this is the least severe 5.11 on the crag. To establish the toprope, scramble up the chimney to the north (brutal 5.3 R) or lead a nice 5.7 R slab just right of Pay at the Pump.
Six bolts to two bolts with chains. If you don't want to run out 5.6 bring a couple small nuts or TCUs for horizontal cracks low on the route.
