By running it out to the P1 anchor of Thin Air, you can link into an awesome bolted multipitch! 4 pitches including SMK. Jul 28, 2017

First two bolts are all the action. After that it eases up considerably. Mar 26, 2017

Very fun lead. After clipping the first bolt you are pretty much safe Sep 3, 2014

Fun route with a variety of movement for a 5.9, mostly focusing on fun body tension until the third bolt. Excellent exposure. Eases off quite a bit after the 3rd bolt, but the moves are none the less interesting. May 5, 2013
