Description [Suggest Change]
Action packed. Start out w/ a slightly runout 5.9ish roof (carrot bolt?), then up a technical off-vertical shallow dihedral (small nuts, ~10+). The wall then rears back to overhanging, with a couple of face moves bringing you to the crux 4" crack where the challenge is keeping your composure in the face of substantial pump potential; it's probably not giving away to much to say the crux can be done w/ little or no actual offwidthing. As soon as possible, cut left for a to a ledge, a belay and rap anchors.
Location [Suggest Change]
Maybe 30M left of the obvious sport climb Manic Depressive and its prodigious cheater pile, in an alcove behind some boulders.
Protection [Suggest Change]
RPs to #4 Camalot though if I recall correctly, most of the placements are stoppers. You can probably get by w/out the #4 Camalot as there are nut placements in the OW.
